Global Consciousness Project - Registering Coherence and Resonance in the World. The Global Consciousness Project, also called the EGG Project, is an international and multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists, engineers, artists and others. This website introduces methods and technology and empirical results in one section, and presents interpretations and applications in another. We have been collecting data from a global network of random event generators since August, 1998. The network has grown to about 65 host sites around the world running custom software that reads the output of physical random number generators and records a 200-bit trial sum once every second, continuously over months and years. The data are transmitted over the internet to a server in Princeton, NJ, USA, where they are archived for later analysis. The purpose of this project is to examine subtle correlations that appear to to reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world.

An Holy Excerpt from his Greate Alchymeckal Worke of 1928: The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopaedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy.Egypt, a great center of learning and the birthplace of many arts and sciences, furnished an ideal environment for Transcendental experimentation. Here the black magicians of Atlantis continued to exercise their superhuman powers until they had completely undermined and corrupted the morals of the primitive Mysteries. By establishing a sacerdotal caste they usurped the position formerly occupied by the initiates, and seized the reins of spiritual government. Thus black magic dictated the state religion and paralyzed the intellectual and spiritual activities of the individual by demanding his complete and unhesitating acquiescence in the dogma formulated by the priestcraft. The Pharaoh became a puppet in the hands of the Scarlet Council -- a committee of archsorcerers elevated to power by the priesthood. These sorcerers then began the systematic destruction of all keys to the ancient wisdom, so that none might have access to the knowledge necessary to reach adeptship without first becoming one of their order. They mutilated the rituals of the Mysteries while professing to preserve them, so that even though the neophyte passed through the degrees he could not secure the knowledge to which he was entitled. Idolatry was introduced by encouraging the worship of the images which in the beginning the wise had erected solely as symbols for study and meditation. False interpretations were given to the emblems and figures of the Mysteries, and elaborate theologies were created to confuse the minds of their devotees. The masses, deprived of their birthright of understanding and groveling in ignorance, eventually became the abject slaves of the spiritual impostors. Superstition universally prevailed and the black magicians completely dominated national affairs, with the result that humanity still suffers from the sophistries of the priestcrafts of Atlantis and Egypt.
"The majority of modern mediumistic apparitions are but elemental creatures masquerading through bodies composed of thought substance supplied by the very persons desiring to behold these wraiths of decarnate beings." "...in the arcanum of magic it is declared that 'he controls the soul who controls the blood of another.' "
CEREMONIAL magic is the ancient art of invoking and controlling spirits by a scientific application of certain formulae. A magician, enveloped in sanctified vestments and carrying a wand inscribed with hieroglyphic figures, could by the power vested in certain words and symbols control the invisible inhabitants of the elements and of the astral world. While the elaborate ceremonial magic of antiquity was not necessarily evil, there arose from its perversion several false schools of sorcery, or black magic.

"What is this place?" she asked. "One o' th' kitchen-gardens," he answered. "What is that?" said Mary, pointing through the other green door. "Another of 'em," shortly. "There's another on t'other side o' th' wall an' there's th' orchard t'other side o' that." "Can I go in them?" asked Mary. "If tha' likes. But there's nowt to see." Mary made no response. She went down the path and through the second green door. There, she found more walls and winter vegetables and glass frames, but in the second wall there was another green door and it was not open. Perhaps it led into the garden which no one had seen for ten years. As she was not at all a timid child and always did what she wanted to do, Mary went to the green door and turned the handle.

by Elizabeth Bare-it Brown-Nose (daughter of Mrs. Brown & Mr. Nose) Judging beauty by the books People say they like your looks But I relate more lingually: It's through my tongue that you touch me. You are sweet beyond compare Your feet may stink but I don't care 'Cause taste, to me, (I've told my nose) Is all that matters 'bout your toes. We warm up, kissing, just for kicks With tongue in cheek I get my licks And lather up your lips with suds You make me whet; you burst my 'buds! I love to nibble on your feets And eyes and ears and nose and teats! Then down I go -- I won't be sated Till on your pubes I've salivated. And deep into your scrumptious slit With trembling tongue I smear my spit, But there I stop; I'm not so heinous As to eat your awful anus. You know you'd never find a soul Who'd rather smoke than stroke THAT hole, So don't feel bad -- let's keep in touch 'Cause I still lick you very much. Posted by Ned Netherded

The Roman goddess of war, popular among the Roman soldiers. She accompanied Mars in battle, and was variously given as his wife, sister or daughter. She had a temple on the Capitolinus (inaugurated in 296 BCE and burned down in 48 BCE), where, as an act of war, a spear was cast against the distant enemy. Her festival was celebrated on June 3. Bellona's attribute is a sword and she is depicted wearing a helmet and armed with a spear and a torch. She could be of Etruscan origin, and is identified with the Greek Enyo.

The Associated Press Monday, February 21, 2005 DENVER Hunter S. Thompson, the acerbic counterculture writer who popularized a new form of fictional journalism in books like ‘‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,’’ fatally shot himself Sunday night at his Aspen-area home, his son said. He was 67. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was 1st published in installments in the November 1971 issues of the Rolling Stone magazine. It was an immediate success as a book in which Hunter S. Thompson?s alter ego, Raoul Duke, and his Samoan attorney Dr. Gonzo (who happens to be Oscar Zeta Acosta) drive from L.A. to Las Vegas with their trunk full of: "...two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers.....also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls...but the only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible than a man in the depths of an ether binge..." http://www.univie.ac.at/Anglistik/easyrider/data/graphics/rs_hst1.gif http://www.univie.ac.at/Anglistik/easyrider/data/Fear_and_Loathing.htm#rabbit Posted by: Beatrix at February 21, 2005 04:48 AM ***** Charlotte Haze: Do you believe in God?

A sweet disorder in the dress Kindles in clothes a wantonness: A lawn about the shoulders thrown Into a fine distraction -- An erring lace, which here and there Enthrals the crimson stomacher -- A cuff neglectful, and thereby Ribbands to flow confusedly -- A winning wave, deserving note, In the tempestuous petticoat -- A careless shoe-string, in whose tie I see a wild civility -- Do more bewitch me than when art Is too precise in every part. (b.1591 - d.1674)

Norman Mailer’s short story about a comic writer with an ambition to transcend his middle-class existence is at times funny and at times tragic. The snippet of information offered in the ever-useful footnotes of Norton Anthology which tells the reader that Mailer himself planned to use the story as the prologue to a mammoth eight-part novel about the adventures of a mythical hero, Sergius O’Shaughnessy, also casts a comical light over the autobiographical aspects of the story’s main character’s sloppy attempts at starting the ”Great American Novel”. Mailer’s planned hero, Sergius O’Shaughnessy, is present in The Man Who Studied Yoga in several separate fragments. The protagonist, Sam Slovoda, goes regularly to a psychoterapist called Dr. Sergius, and two O’Shaugnessys appear in the story: Cassius, a near-mythical mixture of Corto Maltese, Gandhi and Hunter S. Thompson, and Jerry, a fallen radical leader of the 30s who has become an alcoholic.

It is the Great Ones, the masters of life, whose light illumines the pathway, even at its commencement, and grows brighter with each step. Their light shines continuously; and it is only the dark clouds in the minds of men that shut it out. These are the Buddhas of Compassion. A Buddha is one who has ascended the rungs of the evolutionary ladder of life, rung by rung, one after the other, and who thus has attained Buddhahood, which means human plenitude of spiritual and intellectual glory, and who has done all this by his own self-devised and self-directed exertions along the far past evolutionary pathway. He is an "Awakened One," one who manifests the divinity which is the very core of the core of his own being. The Buddhas of Compassion are the noblest flowers of the human race. They are men who have raised themselves from humanity into quasi-divinity; and this is done by letting the light imprisoned within, the light of the inner god, pour forth and manifest itself through the humanity of the man, through the human soul of the man. Through sacrifice and abandoning of all that is mean and wrong, ignoble and paltry and selfish; through opening up the inner nature so that the god within may shine forth; in other words, through self-directed evolution, they have raised themselves from mere manhood into becoming god-men, man-gods -- human divinity. Every human being is a Buddha unmanifest.

This art is born of personal revelation and experience, but many will discover an echo in themselves which will trigger their own voyages of discovery, allowing them to use their minds imaginatively, spiritually and joyously to enhance their own lives. Michel de Saint Ouen

BIO: When realized I couldn't draw performers fast enough to capture all that I saw going on, I taught myself photography. Inside small poorly-lit bars and bookstores throughout Los Angeles in the mid-nineties, I started shooting these alternative comedians as they, too, honed their craft. Most of us were somewhat new to the city, arriving from San Francisco, as I did, or from New York, Chicago, Boston, Toronto and beyond, to form a cozy community insulated from slick industry mentality and personnel. This made for risky behavior on and off stage, brutally honest feedback from peers, and great shows. Eventually, many of these folks became famous while some remain legends to insiders, but all of them herein moved me in some way. Smart, daring and really freakin' funny, I have been lucky to call many friends and all inspiring. This experience has been extended to include those relatively rare musicians who can also be naked on stage (figuratively, I mean, unlike a few comics who shall remain nameless--at least until the book comes out!)

Marijuana is frequently beneficial in the treatment of the following conditions: *AIDS. Marijuana can reduce the nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite caused by the ailment itself and by various AIDS medications. *Glaucoma. Marijuana can reduce interlobular pressure, thereby alleviating the pain and slowing -- and sometimes stopping -- the progress of the condition. (Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. It damages vision by increasing eye pressure over time.) *Cancer. Marijuana can stimulate the appetite and alleviate nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of chemotherapy treatment. *Multiple Sclerosis. Marijuana can limit the muscle pain and spasticity caused by the disease, as well as relieving tremor and unsteadiness of gait. (Multiple sclerosis is the leading cause of neurological disability among young and middle-aged adults in the United States.) *Epilepsy. Marijuana can prevent epileptic seizures in some patients. *Chronic Pain. Marijuana can alleviate the chronic, often debilitating pain caused by myriad disorders and injuries.
