Just watched this 2010 documentary, which is indeed mind-bending.

Through the Wormhole, Is there a Creator? (with Morgan Freeman):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0w4D4ZaAJQ

It brings fresh and solid directions of where to look to somehow 'rationalize' this kind of discussion. This is the scientific helms of Cosmology a field traditionally dealt with by Religion.

Find out about Higgs Boson, sacred geometry, the sense presence area of the right hemisphere, surffing in Hawaii, the 'Sims Hypothesis' and more...

Enjoy...

Morgan Freeman has watched the final at the Foobolle-WC in South-Africa.

...and me those videos. They were kinda alright, or rather sort of old-school, actually did one get reminded of the times when people still believed that fish accrue from falling leaves into water! Wyrd Sphinks, Goddess from Scandinavia is just saying that it used to make her smile ey lot in those glorious times of wizardry in Ozzlo. We both'd like to express our heart-felt appreciations of Mr. Grinn DJinn for his contribution of that block-buster, so we could find our way quickly to the polar regions to make more (way) for some spectacular Aurora Borealis. ...anyone seen'em? with brrrilliant arctic summer nights, skoals, lols and no net.

"Hey MegGyver, here are a dish-shaped oyster, a golden happy-metal CD, my hair pins, a copper coin and an indigenous exotic lemon, strange but true. How long will it take you?"

"We don't wanna create an EMP, would we? Look up, see that atmospheric jet stream offering us a lift? around the next glacier should be a Hard-Rock Café with DSL, de super luxe twigs, matchsticks and quilts."

"Ah, you are going to send smoke signals then?"

"Ney, incidentally have I thought of getting a campfire a-crackling, roll up comfortably with the blankets and hoping some albatrosses with Fleetwood Macs come along. I'm about to show the world my idea of a proper application, called 'How to make an apple-crumble stumble', only using a bowling ball from the fly-swatter plant."

"Hark Perphcat, the music-box is playing our song."

"My dear Excellency Weirdo, if this' supposed to be Perfect Strangers then the performing snowflakes tinkling on the roof have only heard Dream Theater's verzy."

"Mephinks we've hit a streak of fortune. There's Nena with a fleet of montgolfières."

"..with a ninety-nine sure chance that now the secret spell what has jumped out from the 'Books of Madchic, You Knever Knows and Good Lucks' ..right into my mind and from which nobody can tell for certain what it might do, tries to get spoken."

"Quick then, lilt a strong song."

"Cannot for all the fun. ...'kay: oh ney, oleo-leo-ley."

"Ow-ha, the glaciers begin a sort of foxtrot.."

what, Morgan really is believing he's a ..., probably had a longer discussing with the other God Ra or had a worst case scenario hang-over when choosing well that screaching triple white denim, the slow-talented Snowmaster.

Now my sober, simple phoughts to the alleged pixeldomness, creation a stupid simulation and what comes next?!!.. NATURALLY must there be an outermost limit to smallness in our world, one cannot divide space, belittle any a thing until infinity. Easy to see! or not? You'll probably have heard about that s i ! ! y riddle from some philosophers of how a Mr. Wottsname can beat a turtle in this race (even being aware of the outcome):

in a stadium a tortoise gets an advantage of an athlete of say half a round. Now their Gedankenexperiment, theoretical mind messing, when the runner arrives at the 200m mark where the animal started from, that one then could move a bit as well. In so spinning the paradox the man should have never been able in overtaking its opponent. So there is actually a.. point of no distance, like the temperature of absolute zero (at -273.16° Celsius, 0 Kelvin by definition; that state of matter where it stands completely still -> the warmer the more movements) Also is me sure that quarks are depicting the tiniest particles, on this scale, smaller would be needless, it takes endless energy to do anything with them. Like to think that Gods have strewn some crumbs of certainty for us to move along from.

And now the best bits (how often have we already read about it?): there is that phing with dualism, the mind-boggling fact of matter being a particle and a wave, not understood by any person ...yet. I leave you with this. ..there is a point of view to get all under one hat.

ps- sometimes one's feeling so superreal and full of you-name-it energy, uforic, helpful, etc, earnest, wish of being silly that is all so strong that it cannot be other than Gods really want to be with a phiew from us spaecialists. Donno what'd happen if ever some of'em come together, a-hoohhh. - Nice, yeah, evening sky with clowns and waexing mood. .... see now what i mint? overspooky, innit? --your lord of lightning, lore and ..hmm L=^Q^=ve, later more, ciau.

I just had a mildly transcendent experience listening to my recently arrived original WOIIFTM LP for the first time, with all lights out, strategically placed between the speakers, facing my stereo...

It all makes sense :idea:

Vortex Based Mathematics

As Russell Blake, senior researcher from Microsoft, has said of Marko's work,

'This fantastic coherence has existed since the beginning of time but has yet to be harnessed by mankind and the potential is truly mind-boggling.'

Mathematics as we know it today is only a tool to symbolize quantities. Vortex-Based Mathematics (VBM) is completely different because it is a dynamic math that shows the relationships and thus the qualities of numbers rather than the quantities.

Marko studied all the world's great religions. He decided to take The Most Great Name of Bahaullah (prophet of the Bahai Faith) which is Abha and convert it into numbers. He did this in an effort to discover the true precise mystical intonation of The Most Great Name of God. Since the Bahai sacred scripture was originally written in Persian and Arabic, Marko used the Abjad numerical notation system for this letter to number translation. This was a sacred system of allocating a unique numerical value to each letter of the 27 letters of the alphabet so that secret quantum mechanic physics could be encoded into words. What Marko discovered was that (A=1, b=2, h=5, a=1) = 9. The fact that The Most Great Name of God equaled 9 seemed very important to him as everything he had read in both the Bahai scriptures and other religious text spoke of nine being the omni-potent number. So next he drew out a circle with nine on top and 1 through 8 going around the circle clockwise. Then he discovered a very intriguing number system within this circle. Marko knew he had stumbled upon something very profound. This circle with its hidden number sequence was the "Symbol of Enlightenment." This is the MATHEMATICAL FINGERPRINT OF GOD.

Image

Follow along as the amazing properties of this symbol unveil themselves to you. Put your pencil on number 1 and without picking up your pencil, move your pencil in a straight line to number 2, then 4, then across the center to 8. Notice that you are doubling. So next should be 16 and it is, but 1+6=7. So move your pencil to 7. Then 16 doubled is 32, but 3+2=5. So move your pencil to 5. Then 32 doubled is 64 and 6+4=10 and 1+0=1. And you're back to 1. So move the pencil across the center and back up to 1. The significance of the Mayan calender is that 64 is one complete cycle of infinity. Then it begins again with 64 doubled is 128 and 1+2+8=11, then 1+1=2. And so on. You will never get off this track as you keep doubling. Notice the infinity symbol has formed underneath your pencil, creating an ever-repeating pattern of 1, 2, 4, 8, 7, 5. Amazingly, this number sequence stays intact as you half numbers as well. Start again at the 1 but this time go backwards on the infinity symbol. Half of 1 is .5, so move your pencil to the 5. Then half of .5 is .25, and 2+5=7. So move your pencil to the 7. And half of .25 is .125 and 1+2+5=8. So move to the 8. Next half of .125 is .0625 and 0+6+2+5=13 and 1+3=4. So go across to the 4. And half of .0625 is .03125 and 0+3+1+2+5=11 and 1+1=2. So move to the 2. Forever staying on the route of 1,2,4,8,7,5 even backwards.

Image

As you replace the decimal numbers with their power (for example 0.5=10, .25=100, 0.125=1,000) you will see that the powers line up horizontally.

Image

At this point some of you might be thinking, "What in the world do these number patterns have to do with real world applications?" These number groupings piece together into a jig-saw-like puzzle pattern that perfectly demonstrates the way energy flows. Our base-ten decimal system is not man made, rather it is created by this flow of energy. Amazingly, after twenty years of working with this symbol and collaborating with engineers and scientists, Marko discovered that the 1,2,4,8,7,5 was a doubling circuit for a very efficient electrical coil.

There was still one more very important number pattern to be realized. On the MATHEMATICAL FINGERPRINT OF GOD notice how the 3, 9, and 6 are in red and do not connect at the base. That is because it is a vector. The 1,2,4,8,7,5 is the third dimension while the oscillation between the 3 and 6 demonstrates the fourth dimension, which is the higher dimensional magnetic field of an electrical coil. The 3, 9, and 6 always occur together with the 9 as the control. In fact, the Yin/Yang is not a duality but rather a trinary. This is because the 3 and 6 represent each side of the Yin/Yang and the 9 is the "S" curve between them. Everything is based on thirds. We think that the universe is based on dualities because we see the effects not the cause.

Image

When I say the oscillation between the 3 and 6 what I mean is that 3 doubled is 6 and 6 doubled is 12, but 1+2=3, and then 12 doubled is 24, but 2+4=6 and 24 doubled is 48, but 4+8=12 and 1+2=3. So the 3 and 6 go back and forth in their own separate dimension. This creates the other important pattern of (3,9,6,6,9,3,3,9).

Now lay out the number patterns on the 2D grid. Place the 3,9,6,6,9,3,3,9 number pattern in the center of the 1,2,4,8,7,5 number pattern going forward and the 1,2,4,8,7,5 number pattern going backwards this continuation creates an amazingly perfect number map. The MATHEMATICAL FINGERPRINT OF GOD is a legend or blueprint for the torus and can be visualized in a 2D form below.

Image

The 2D number map forms the 3D skin of the torus and thus demonstrates the concept of the winding of the coil.

Image

And the 9 demonstrates the omni dimension which is the higher dimensional flux emanation called Spirit that always occurs within the center of the magnetic field lines. The last number left to be explained from The MATHEMATICAL FINGERPRINT OF GOD is the number 9. The number nine is Energy being manifested in a single moment event of occurrence in our physical world of creation. It is unique because it is the focal center by being the only number identifying with the vertical upright axis. It is the singularity or the Primal Point of Unity. The number nine never changes and is linear. For example all multiples of 9 equal 9. 9x1=9, 9x2=18, but 1+8=9, 9x3=27, but 2+7=9. This is because it is emanating in a straight line from the center of mass out of the nucleus of every atom, and from out of the singularity of a black hole. It is complete, revealing perfection, and has no parity because it always equals itself. The number nine is the missing particle in the universe known as Dark Matter.

The number nine lines up with the center of the infinity symbol and it is from this center that the linear emanations we call Spirit emanate from the center of mass outwards. Spirit is the only thing in the universe that moves in a straight line. Spirit is the inertia aether that Einstein postulated. Spirit is what makes everything else warp and curve around it. The perfect number patterns are actually created by this Spirit energy. Without Spirit the universe would become destitute and void. Spirit flow is the source of all movement as well as the source of the non-decaying spin of the electron.

Image

Numbers have temporal, spatial and volumetric qualities. For example, physics is the base ten number system. In other words numbers have bilateral or mirror symmetry and line up in stratified layers of horizontal planes. This is the same as physics' parity. There are nine simple multiplication series (one series for each discrete number 1-9) in Vortex-Based Mathematics. These multiplication series are based upon reducing all products to single digits via horizontal addition forming meaningful number sequences.

Image

There are three polar number pairs; 1 and 8, 2 and 7, 4 and 5. For example, multiples of 4 are 1x4=4, 2x4=8, 3x4=12 but 1+2=3, 4x4=16 but 1+6=7, 5x4=20 but 2+0=2, 6x4=24 but 2+4=6, 7x4=28 but 2+8=10 and 1+0=1, 8x4=32 but 3+2=5, 9x4=36 but 3+6=9. So multiples of 4 equal 4,8,3,7,2,6,1,5 and multiples of 5, the polar opposite of 4, are (5,1,6,2,7,3,8,4). Each pair forms number sequences that are identical but in opposing directions. So if you take the multiples of 5 and look at them running backwards they are the same as the multiples of 4 running forwards. In exactly the same way the multiplication series for the polar pair [1,8] is: (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) and (8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1) for the number 1 and the number 8 respectively. The multiplication series for the polar pair [2,7] is: (2,4,6,8,1,3,5,7) and (7,5,3,1,8,6,4,2). Everything is starting from the center outwards, from the singularity.

Image

Nature is expressing herself with numbers. The symmetry of our decimal system is a principle of nature. The 9 axis causes the doubling circuit and it is the point towards which matter converges and away from which it diverges or expands. Thus the polar number pairs will be mirror images of each other, both flowing in opposite directions from the central axis. There is perfect symmetry wrapped around a single point coiling outwards the way that petals are wrapped in a rose, or a nautilus shell spirals outward.

The viddy got pulled! I was going to watch it and comment but now I can only comment. All I needed to learn about the beyond was somewhere in Morgan Freeman's "bathing in a casket" song on Electric Company if only I knew it at the time. Okay maybe not all I needed to learn but it was pretty good. God is not dead he just smells funny. ;)

I posted this in the youtube thread but I actually think it is more suited for this topic. What do you think? Can someone comment on their personal experiences? I mean, with lots of almost senior members living in the US and Europe around the 60s and 70s and fans of Rock... It is not a legal or common substance around here... In Brazil we have the Santo Daime (Ayuhasca), that is permitted on religious grounds but quite restricted on it's use to the Daime and other such similar religious groups...

Grandma on acid! Researcher finds rare footage of 1950s housewife in LSD experiment

* Author discovers TV excerpt while researching Aldous Huxley biography
* 'I'm part of the air... I can see all the molecules,' says spaced-out volunteer


Next time you hear someone say 'Back in the olden days, we had to make our own fun', this is probably what they are talking about.

An American biographer - doing research for a book on pioneers in the field of hallucinogenic drug experimentation - has stumbled upon footage of a prim and proper housewife struggling with the effects of LSD.

The bizarre and slightly creepy footage shows a doctor dosing up the young woman and filming the consequences.

By now, of course, she's likely to be somebody's grandmother.

Biographer Don Lattin said he came across the footage while preparing a group biography of British writer Aldous Huxley, philosopher Gerald Heard, and Bill Wilson, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Mr Lattin said: 'It's from a television programme, circa 1956, about mental health issues.

'The researcher, Dr Sidney Cohen, was dosing volunteers at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Los Angeles.'

Dr Cohen, seen sitting at a table and wearing a lounge suit - his legs crossed in the classic I'm-a-scientist pose - interviews the unidentified housewife, who is dressed in her best black frock.

She tells the doctor: 'My husband is an employee here at the VA and he said they were looking for normal people, so I volunteered.'

Dr Cohen asks: 'How do you feel about coming here and drinking this strange material?'

She replies: 'A little nervous, perhaps.'

In the unintentionally comical manner that seems to be the preserve of 1950s training films, the camera zooms in on an innocuous-looking glass of clear liquid on the table, as the good doctor says: 'Well, I think it's time for you to have your lycergic acid. Drink this down and we'll be back after a while and see how you're doing.'

As the housewife obediently drains the glass and Dr Cohen smiles benevolently, a dramatic voice-over explains: 'This is a glass of water, colourless, tasteless. It contains 100 gamma of LSD 25. One tenth of a milligram, the equivalent of one 600th of a grain.

Down the hatch: The subject drinks her lysergic acid and embarks upon her first 'trip'. The footage provides a fascinating glimpse of how the drug totally warps the mind

'An ounce of this material will make 150,000 such doses. Let us observe the affect some three hours later.'

Unsurprisingly, three hours later the housewife is insanely high.

She says: 'Everything is in colour and I can feel the air. I can see it, I can see all the molecules - I'm part of it. Can't you see it?'

Dr Cohen asks: 'How do you feel inside.'

She replies: 'Inside? I don't have any inside.'

Mr Lattin said: 'Aldous Huxley, who first tried mescaline in 1953 and wrote about it in his seminal book The Doors Of Perception, got Gerald Heard interested in the spiritual potential of psychedelic drugs.

'Heard then turned to Bill Wilson, guiding him on an LSD trip supervised by Dr Cohen in the summer of 1956 - perhaps in the same room we see in this video.

'Wilson, who started AA in the 1930s, thought LSD could help alcoholics have the spiritual awakening that is such an important part of the 12-step recovery programme he popularised.

'Heard and Huxley set the stage for better-known psychedelic research.'

Huxley's early work also inspired a more layman drug researcher called Jim Morrison, who called his band The Doors after Huxley's The Doors Of Perception.

I ate a couple peyote buttons, once, and saw AC/DC.....but, then again, I would have seen them without the peyote, anyway.

Was AC/DC spiritual in anyway?

I've read this book once...

They were certainly uplifting. (the lead guitarist was uplifted onto a muscular roadie's shoulders, who then stepped down, into the audience, and ran out the back door...only to reappear back on stage a minute, or so, later. The guitar solo never stopped, through all this.) Any sufficiently advanced science will appear to be magic to a less sophisticated people. Magic leads to spirituality in the masses.

I think Rock concerts are very 'spiritual' in that regard...

The viddy got pulled! I was going to watch it and comment but now I can only comment. All I needed to learn about the beyond was somewhere in Morgan Freeman's "bathing in a casket" song on Electric Company if only I knew it at the time. Okay maybe not all I needed to learn but it was pretty good. God is not dead he just smells funny. ;)
