Spectacular energy technologies were developed right along with the other breakthroughs. Since that time, multiple methods for producing vast amounts of energy at extremely low cost have been developed. None of these technologies have made it to the consumer market as an article of commerce, however. Exactly why this is true will be discussed shortly.
Research demonstrates that compounds within Cannabis specifically target and kill malignant body cells while protecting beneficial body cells. Pot smokers have been found to have fewer cases of lung cancer than even people who smoke nothing at all. Could it really be that one of mother nature’s most persecuted weeds carries with it the cures for cancer that have eluded modern science for decades? Perhaps we will see the de-stigmatization of this herb soon and witness an evolution in our culture as it becomes more willing to subvert cultural taboos in order to conquer serious social issues.
Together, we’re learning that instead of waiting for politicians and corporations to fix the system, it’s possible to create a better one of our own, right under their noses. A new way of living, in which access is valued over ownership, experience is valued over material possessions, and “mine” becomes “ours” so everyone’s needs are met without waste.
The goal is not the destruction of the ego but the attainment of an ego-free state — liberation from the tyrannical demands of the ego, which can never be satiated. Similarly, we don’t want to see the smashing of current institutions, but their alchemical transmutation, so they support our human community and safeguard the resources of the natural world. Humanity, as a whole, is rapidly losing our appetite for violence and destruction. We are increasingly sick of the negative patterns of the past, and ready to overcome the inertia.
But first off, congratulations for making it through another year, regardless of how you spent that year and whether or not you kept your last year’s resolutions. It’s no small miracle simply to be alive. Take a moment, feel this gratitude well up in your heart….just to be here.
If each of us would get that message the phony world structure would crumble in a minute. Every soldier would drop his weapon and go home. Every politician would wake up as if out of a dream and go be with his family. Every policeman would lay down his gun, take off his uniform, and go help someone in need, smiling and greeting people on his way.
Philosopher, author and inventor of the Veggie Burger, Gregory Sams in an interview by The Moore Show. Here he discusses the idea that the sun is not only the center of our Solar System, but also a living, conscious entity whose intention brings life to our planet. Following in the footsteps of the most inquiring minds of all time, Gregory Sams encourages us to reconsider the intrinsic connections between our natural world and our conscious material existence.
7. Find and live your purpose – Searching for a purpose will help you find your true purpose here on Earth. When you find your purpose and are able to share it with the rest of the world, you will continue to raise your level of consciousness.
How did the Dutch come to live amongst such an effective and inspiring infrastructure designed for cycling? In this short video we learn a bit about how public spaces can grow to reflect the intentions and wisdom of local residents, and we are inspired to imagine what our world could become if we would give ourselves the freedom to consider radical ideas to seemingly out of control problems.
One of the core critiques from the permaculture perspective has to do with the fragmentation of our modern society. In a drive for more freedom and to make our lives more “advanced”, convenient and prosperous, we tend to remove ourselves from the web of connection that supports us and makes us feel healthy and complete. For most of us, this is a pattern that we inherited and we enact and reenact it constantly because it’s what we know.
Each day around this nation, and indeed the world, one can find endless stories of horrific animal cruelty—torture and murder so vile it defies imagination—conceived of and carried out by kids as young as 3 years old. There appears to be a proliferation of fresh-faced psychopaths, spawning faster than the poisonous spores of a Frankenstenian experiment gone awry. Why and how does such evil take root?
Through the heightened sensory experience of these mushrooms, regional Shaman and natives understood tthat reindeer locate and consume these mushrooms deliberately, showing that the even the wildest beasts of nature willfully seek out the transcendental boundary dissolving experience given as a gift to us all from the Earth. Through this insight we further develop our respect for nature and begin to question the taboo that society has placed on the profound experiences offered by psychedelic substances found in nature. Merry Christmas to all and to all a strange night!
You owe it to yourself to be the best person possible. Because if you are, others will want to be with you, want to provide you with the things you want in exchange for what you’re giving to them. Some people will choose not to be with you for reasons that have nothing to do with you. When that happens, look elsewhere for the relationships you want. Don’t make someone else’s problem your problem.
In fact, from the perspective of monochemical-oriented pharmacology, a drug with more than 10 simultaneously therapeutic actions, and without the vast array of adverse, unintended side effects commonly associated with novel, patentable chemicals, turmeric would represent an impossible, miraculous entity, which if patentable, would generate more revenue than all the blockbuster drugs on the market put together.
Life is like a mirror. When we smile, it smiles back at us. When we scowl, it scowls back at us. To effectively change the world, “You don’t comb the mirror, you comb your own hair and the mirror changes,” as David Icke so wisely puts it.
From the video, “Indelible Promise: A Conversation with Paul Pantone, American Inventor”. Pantone demonstrates one of the GEET technologies, as applied to an internal combustion engine. The “fuel processor” converts the energy of the “fuel”, in this case, coffee, into plasma, which powers the engine.
What’s way up is fear. We have a media that live and breathe crime reporting, and always as lurid as possible. The more gruesome the story, the better. And we have a government that is all about generating fear — fear of crime, fear of immigrants, fear of terrorists, fear of poor people, fear of the 99%, fear of hitch-hikers, you name it.
