and we are up and running…. let the Conspiracy theories begin!
A few weeks ago Luna and I were off site about her project and the conversation turned to technology. I have been around technology and the Alt-religions for decades, I showed her some of the highest level experiments, artificially replicating what many people in the Alt-Religions do naturally and The motives behind many of these experiments and end uses if successful, I think Luna also realized these are the things dreams or nightmares are made of how will it be used?
Like the light and dark practitioners, No difference than a “white hat or a black hat hacker”. Its all there for the users to decide. We will be exploring some pretty heavy philosophy merged into technology and technology merged into the ancient philosophies.
I have never written about these things, to me our gifts, talents and experiences are a very private thing, also when you have achieved a certain level of “enlightenment”, the risks out weigh the rewards of discussing the Alt Religions and Philosophies, it simply opens you only open yourself up to enemies, ridicule and the laws of unintended consequences.
So this is Brain Candy with no right or wrong answers, simply a place to discuss what is about to be or already is in our world. I speak in generalities simply because I have studied various
Alt-philosophies in every area of the world and many of the concepts are the same but the names are where the confusion begin… so you get to call it whatever your beliefs have named it.
As for me? Does it matter? In this life I have been in the Tech Business for a very long time, sometimes founding, sometimes developing and sometimes being an observer of many of the things you have used or are using. You can believe this or not. The name Erling is name I once answered to, Erling from Norway to be exact, the times Erling walked with the ancient Vikings have names long since faded in to the sea and forgotten by millenia so no harm can come to him or myself by speaking freely and openly about what is to come.
This is all about free thought, free will and the free flow of information, speak what you want, speculate or whatever you feel the need to do to help channel the collective wisdom.
Lets start with The Hadron Collider
To of the leading futurist global research centers of the World. The choices they made for their “representation” is The Hindu God/Goddess Shiva welcomes you to the CERN main public entrance. (Shiva the “creator, destroyer and regenerator”.) Interesting symbol and representation for one of the leading research centers merging an ancient philosophy wouldn’t you say? And Why?
One of the worlds foremost CERN physicists explained it this way
Physicist Fritjof Capra further explained in The Tao of Physics: “The Dance of Shiva symbolises the basis of all existence. At the same time, Shiva reminds us that the manifold forms
in the world are not fundamental, but illusory and ever-changing. Modern physics has shown that the rhythm of creation and destruction is not only manifest in the turn of the seasons and in the birth and death of all living creatures, but is also the very essence of inorganic matter.”
“According to quantum field theory, the dance of creation and destruction is the basis of the very existence of matter. Modern physics has thus revealed that every subatomic particle not only performs an energy dance, but also is an energy dance; a pulsating process of creation and destruction. For the modern physicists then, Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter, the basis of all existence and of all natural phenomena.”
Interesting explanation too say the least create to destroy or destroy to create? All taken to a new artificial universal level. The things that seek to artificially control through technology are the gifts many of us have been given and have the abilities to practice naturally. Yet if you said ” I can do that” you would be met with all sorts of negative responses, if it is done artificially then it is cutting edge research with “endless possibilities” of both good and bad results. Not going to dwell on all these aspects for now, simply using this as an example of
the merger of Technology and the Alt-Philosophies/Arts/Practice.
For the Christians and Western Cultures.
The Tech Giant Apple and their logo is an Apple with a bite taken out of it…. well here is the designers explanation. Once Adam and Eve had their first taste of knowledge, they knew that they were naked, and they were ashamed. That first bite of the apple represents the fall of man.
It is a brilliant and ironic logo, on your Mac you can read the bible or have the temptation to do something naughty… your choice. A most ironic Logo indeed.
Then consider this fact about founder of Apple Steve Jobs in his last days of his life, refusing and rejecting the Modern Doctors and Medicine and opted for alt medicines and alternate treatments.
He lost his battle with the cancer but… one must really ask why would one of the Icons of Technology choose this Company Logo and later reject Technology to save his life?
And turn to Healing oils, herbs crystals and other ancient proven ALt Medicines? I do not think these were accidental events.
I can give you thousands of examples of the Alt-Thought interwoven into every aspect of technology… the “Deamons” in your email, the sprits (spirits) in your games, more spells and magic than I care to think about
Even Trolls encountered on Social Media, shouting rude things at who ever will listen!
So as this forum evolves I will be taking you down the rabbit hole into a world that you didn’t know existed. It maybe funny, it maybe scary, it is what it is and by all means feel free to participate…
if it means shouting rude things at whoever will listen.
