Nevertheless, our cultural crisis is deepening. Deepening mainly because we have very poor connections between our fragmented and autonomous psychic structures - within ourselves as individuals and within ourselves as a society. Our whole problem is that we can't communicate with each other, we can't express intention. And the psychedelics are sitting there waiting to unify us, to introduce us to the trans-linguistic intention. To carry us forward into a realm of appropriate cultural activity, which is to my mind the realm beyond history. Beyond history lies effortless and appropriate cultural activity. And nature has proceeded us, as it always does, by laying out models that can be followed to realize this.
As an example and by request, I'll point out that the 19th century had a titular animal. Its titular animal was the horse, idealized as the steam engine, the Iron Horse. Marx talked about the locomotive of history, and there was this whole focusing on the horse archetype, which in the 20th century gave way to the titulary animal, the raptor, the bird of prey, as exemplified by high-performance fighter aircraft, as the kind of ultimate union of man and machine in some kind of glorification of the completion of a certain set of cultural ideals. You see?
Well, in thinking about this and in thinking about how language is the cultural frontier of our species, I went to nature looking for models of how we might move beyond the bird of prey, which when you think about it, it is the American symbol. It was also the symbol of the Third Reich. A lot of creepy scenes have actually been into birds of prey ... when Alaric the Visigoth burned Eleusis, it was the crow that fluttered on his battle standard as the greasy smoke swept by. So these dark birds have been with us.
Anyway, in looking for a new titulary animal and drawing the conclusion of what it would mean, I was drawn to look – strangely enough – at cephalopods, octopi. Because I felt, first of all, they are extremely alien. The break between our line of development in the phylogenetic tree and the mollusca, which is what a cephalopod is, is about 700 million years ago. Nevertheless, and many of you who are students of evolution know, that when evolutionists talk about parallel evolution, they always drag out the example of the optical system of the octopi. Because: Isn't this astonishing? It's very much like the human eye, and yet it developed entirely independently, and this shows how the same set of external factors impinging on a raw gene pool will inevitably sculpt the same organs or attain the same end, and so forth and so on.

Well, the optical capacity of octopi is one thing, what interested me was their linguistic organization. They are virtually entirely nervous system. First of all, they have eight arms in the case of the octopods, and ten arms in the case of the squid, the decapods. So coordinating all these organs of manipulation has given them a very evolved, capable nervous system as well as a highly evolved ocular system. But what is really interesting about them is that they communicate with each other by changing the color and texture of their skin and their physical shape. You may have known that octopi could change colors, but you may have thought it was camouflage or something very passive like that. It isn't that at all. They have a vast repertoire of traveling bars, dots, blushes, merging pastels, herringbone patterns, tweeds, mottled this-and-thats, can blush from apricot through teal into dove gray and on to olive ... do all of these things communicating to each other. That is what their large optical system is for. It is to be able to see each other. The other thing which octopi can do – besides having these chromatophores on the surface of their skin – they can change the texture of the skin surface: can make it rugose, papillaed, smooth, lobed, rubbery, runneled, so forth and so on. And then, of course, being shell-less molluscs, they can hide arms and display certain parts of themselves and carry on a dance.
When you analyze what is going on here, what at first seems like merely fascinating facts from natural history, begins to take on a more profound aspect. Because it is an ontological transformation of language that is going on in front of you. Note that by being able to communicate visually, they have no need of a conventionalized culturally reinforced dictionary. Rather, they experience pure intent of each other without ambiguity because each octopus can see what is meant – this is very important – can see what is meant.
And I think that this heralds, or could be made to herald, a transformation in our own definitions of language and communication: what we need is to see what we mean. It's not without consequence or implication, that when we try to communicate the notion of clarity of speech, we always shift into visual metaphors: I see what you mean, he painted a picture, his description was very colorful. It means that when we intend to indicate a lack of ambiguity and communication, we shift to visual analogies. This can in fact be actualized. And in fact, this is what is happening in the psychedelic experience. There we discover, just under the surface of human biological organization, the next level in the organization of language: It's the ability to generate some kind of acoustical hologram that is manipulated by linguistic intent.

Now don't ask me how this happens, because nobody knows how it happens. At this point it's magic. Nevertheless, the fact is it does happen - you can have this experience. It represents a synesthesia in the presence of ongoing communication. It is, in fact, telepathy. It is not what we thought telepathy would be, which I suppose if you're like me, you imagine telepathy would be hearing what other people think. It isn't that. It's seeing what other people mean. And them also seeing what they mean. So that once something has been communicated, both parties can walk around it and look at it the way you study a Brancusi or a Giacometti in an art gallery.
By eliminating the ambiguity of the audio signal and substituting the concreteness of the visual image, the membrane of separation, that allows the fiction of our individuality, can be temporarily overcome. You see? And the temporary overcoming of the illusion of individuality is a much richer notion of ego-death than the kind of white-light, null-states that it has imagined to be. Because the overcoming of the illusion of individuality has political consequences. The political consequences are that one can love one's neighbor, you see, because the commonalty of being is felt. Not reasoned toward, or propagandized into, or behaviorally reinforced, but felt.
This is why there is this persistent notion, which accompanies these psychedelic compounds, of a new political order based on love. This was a hard thing to say in the panhandle in 1965, it's not easy to say in heavy-metal L.A. in 1987. But it seems to be the fact of the matter that love, which poets have celebrated for eons as inaffable, may in fact have certain inaffable dimensions attached to it, but it may in fact be more affable than we had previously cared to imagine. And it's the invoking of the affability of love that has to do with discovering the shared birthright, the atemporal dimension that is co-present with this reality, a dimension that is a vast reservoir of anchoring – existential anchoring – for each and all of us in our lives.
So my response to feeling the political pull of this, feeling the power to transform language, that resided in these things, was to go to the people who I thought would know most about it: the shamans for whom hallucinogenic shamanism has never been an issue, for whom the notion that you're supposed to do it on the natch is a patent absurdity. I mean, if you're serious about doing it on the natch I suggest you eliminate all food. Because this notion of the pristine self somehow riding above the muck of the world, carrying on a spiritual evolution is absolute foolishness. We are made of the stuff of the world.
People, who do not confront the presence of the hallucinogenic possibility, are turning their back on their birthright. In the same way that if you do not experience sex throughout your life you are turning your back on your birthright. After all we could argue that to allow another person to touch you, is to not do it on the natch, right? But, dear friends, we're slicing too close to the bone here to take that approach. It's much better, I think, to open to the world. The world is communication. Nature is the great teacher. All human gurus are simply distillations of the wave of nature that is coming at you. So you can just short-circuit the whole human boil-down, and go straight to the executive suite by putting yourself under a tree in the wilderness. The Great Ones all have said this but they need to be taken more seriously on the subject of their own expendability. Me too.

Going to the Amazon with these kinds of notions and looking at what had been achieved there, I came to have a vision then of the future that could be. That we are sort of hurling ourselves into a new Stone Age where the fruits of the prodigal wandering, that I discussed in such detail last night, can be used to infuse new meaning into that paradise. The imagination of man and woman is so incomparably rich and exerts such an attraction on us as the builder-monkey that we have to honor that. We cannot demonize that and preach a kind of naturalism that if actually put in place would cause the starvation of tens of millions of people. We have passed the point where some kind of Luddite reform can save us. It's only, I think, very self-indulgent elites that can preach voluntary simplicity, because a lot of people are experiencing involuntary simplicity. And, unless you're one of them it rings rather hollow to be told that Zen values are best.
Re-inserting ourselves into nature is inspiration for cultural design – that's what it is, it's not flight from the design process but a re-invigoration of it.
Some of you may be aware of the concept of nanotechnology in which everything is built at the molecular level. By studying the mechanisms of the cell and the immune system and DNA, we begin to have a picture of how molecules and atoms are the machine parts of a microcosmic world, that if we were elf chemists, we could make our way into and create anything that we could imagine. I mean, I can foresee a world where all machines will be made by DNA-like polymers that will code base materials into larger and larger aggregates.

The minaturization of our world is a great frontier. As culture becomes more enveloping, its physical manifestation should become less material. You see? So the ultimate notion is of the world turned back to the form it held – let's say – 35,000 years ago, in which people lived in an environment of entirely climaxed natural perfection. However, behind their eyelids lies a culturally and consensually validated data phase space that is culture, civilization. Turn each of us into a telepathic aquarium that has a direct pipeline to the general ocean of mind and being. This is possible. In fact, its not only possible, it may be the only decent solution: to download ourselves into another dimension. (And I want to note in passing the collapse of Max Headroom. What a tragedy I think that is that his last show was tonight. This was a weird force for cultural transformation, but to be applauded. If anybody here tonight has anything to do with it, I wish them luck.) But this sort of notion ... the Max Headroom people and the William Gibson people have a very high-tech take on this, because they are interested in accentuating this tight blue-jean, cyber-punk kind of notion. But in fact the worlds that they describe will have many many different social sub-groups and social eco-systems forming in them. What the future really means is choice to become who we are, to flower out, to find our own way.
McLuhan saw all this 20 years ago: He said that the rise of global electronic feudalism would create an atomistic fragmentation of culture. It may well be that within 50 years the largest organizational entity on the planet will be corporations with a few million loyal employees, and all larger social institutions will have disappeared because they were unable to command loyalty in a social environment where direct experience has become empowered. And this empowering of direct experience, this return to the feminine, this legitimizing of the presence of the vaster regions of the unconscious – these are all aspects of this emerging paradigm of the spirit. "Understanding and Imagination in the Light of Nature", which is what this two-night party has been called, is a definition of the spirit. Understanding and imagination in the light of nature – in other words, true understanding, poetic imagination, standing as a mirror before nature as object, will cause the hologrammatic presence of the spirit to magically appear. It will be then seen to be a kind of emergent quality of the situation that was previously masked, simply because the elements had not fallen into the correct arrangement. And as we move forward through time over the next 25 years there will be many prophets of the transcendental object at the end of time, many takes.
The important thing is to recall Godel's Incompleteness Theorem and to always recognize the provisional nature of the metaphysical goods that you're going to be sold. Nobody has the faintest notion of what's going on. It's important to keep that in mind. If you have that in mind, then the game proceeds much more cleanly. What is ahead of us is true high adventure.

Elizabeth Gilbert: Being a genius or having one

I am a writer. Writing books is my profession but it's more than that, of course. It is also my great lifelong love and fascination. And I don't expect that that's ever going to change. But, that said, something kind of peculiar has happened recently in my life and in my career, which has caused me to have to sort of recalibrate my whole relationship with this work. And the peculiar thing is that I recently wrote this book, this memoir called "Eat, Pray, Love" which, decidedly unlike any of my previous books, went out in the world for some reason, and became this big, mega-sensation, international bestseller thing. The result of which is that everywhere I go now, people treat me like I'm doomed. Seriously. Doomed, doomed! Like, they come up to me now, all worried, and they say: "Aren't you afraid ... aren't you afraid you're never going to be able to top that? Aren't you afraid you're going to keep writing for your whole life and you're never again going to create a book that anybody in the world cares about at all, ever again?"
So that's reassuring, you know. But it would be worse, except for that I happen to remember that over 20 years ago, when I first started telling people, when I was a teenager, that I wanted to be a writer, I was met with this same kind of, sort of fear-based reaction. And people would say: "Aren't you afraid you're never going to have any success? Aren't you afraid the humiliation of rejection will kill you? Aren't you afraid that you're going to work your whole life at this craft and nothing's ever going to come of it and you're going to die on a scrap heap of broken dreams with your mouth filled with bitter ash of failure?" (Laughter) Like that, you know.
The answer ... the short answer to all those questions is yes. Yes, I'm afraid of all those things. And I always have been. And I'm afraid of many many more things besides that people can't even guess at. Like seaweed, and other things that are scary. But, when it comes to writing the thing that I've been sort of thinking about lately, and wondering about lately, is why? You know, is it rational? Is it logical that anybody should be expected to be afraid of the work that they feel they were put on this Earth to do. You know, and what is it specifically about creative ventures that seems to make us really nervous about each other's mental health in a way that other careers kind of don't do, you know? Like my dad, for example, was a chemical engineer and I don't recall once in his 40 years of chemical engineering, anybody asking him if he was afraid to be a chemical engineer, you know? It didn't ... that chemical engineering block John, how's it going? It just didn't come up like that, you know? But to be fair, chemical engineers as a group haven't really earned a reputation over the centuries for being alcoholic manic-depressives. (Laughter)
We writers, we kind of do have that reputation, and not just writers, but creative people across all genres, it seems, have this reputation for being enormously mentally unstable. And, you know, all what you have to do is look at the very grim death count in the 20th century alone, of really magnificent creative minds who died young and often at their own hands, you know? And even the ones who didn't literally commit suicide seem to be really undone by their gifts, you know. Norman Mailer, just before he died, last interview, he said: "Every one of my books has killed me a little more." An extraordinary statement to make about your life's work, you know. But we don't even blink when we hear somebody say this because we've heard that kind of stuff for so long and somehow we've completely internalized and accepted collectively this notion that creativity and suffering are somehow inherently linked and that artistry, in the end, will always ultimately lead to anguish.
And the question that I want to ask everybody here today is are you guys all cool with that idea? Are you comfortable with that? bbecause you look at it even from an inch away and, you know, I'm not at all comfortable with that assumption. I think it's odious. And I also think it's dangerous, and I don't want to see it perpetuated into the next century. I think it's better if we encourage our great creative minds to live.

And I definitely know that, in my case, in my situation, it would be very dangerous for me to start sort of leaking down that dark path of assumption, particularly given the circumstance that I'm in right now in my career. Which is, you know, like check it out: I'm pretty young, I'm only about 40 years old. I still have maybe another four decades of work left in me. And it's exceedingly likely that anything I write from this point forward is going to be judged by the world as the work that came after the freakish success of my last book, right? I should just put it bluntly, because we're all sort of friends here now: it's exceedingly likely that my greatest success is behind me. Oh, so Jesus, what a thought! You know that's the kind of thought that could lead a person to start drinking gin at nine o'clock in the morning, and I don't want to go there. (Laughter) I would prefer to keep doing this work that I love.
And so, the question becomes, how? And so, it seems to me, upon a lot of reflection, that the way that I have to work now, in order to continue writing, is that I have to create some sort of protective psychological construct, right? I have to, sort of find some way to have a safe distance between me, as I am writing, and my very natural anxiety about what the reaction to that writing is going to be, from now on. And, as I've been looking over the last year for models for how to do that I've been sort of looking across time, and I've been trying to find other societies to see if they might have had better and saner ideas than we have about how to help creative people, sort of manage the inherent emotional risks of creativity.
And that search has led me to ancient Greece and ancient Rome. So stay with me, because it does circle around back. But, ancient Greece and ancient Rome ... people did not happen to believe that creativity came from human beings back then, okay? People believed that creativity was this divine attendant spirit that came to human beings from some distant and unknowable source, for distant and unknowable reasons. The Greeks famously called these divine attendant spirits of creativity "daemons". Socrates, famously, believed that he had a daemon who spoke wisdom to him from afar. The Romans had the same idea, but they called that sort of disembodied creative spirit "a genius". Which is great, because the Romans did not actually think that a genius was a particularly clever individual. They believed that a genius was this sort of magical divine entity, who was believed to literally live in the walls of an artist's studio, kind of like Dobby the house elf, and who would come out and sort of invisibly assist the artist with their work and would shape the outcome of that work.
So brilliant! There it is, right there: that distance that I'm talking about. That psychological construct to protect you from the results of your work. And everyone knew that this is how it functioned, right? So the ancient artist was protected from certain things, like, for example, too much narcissism, right? If your work was brilliant, you couldn't take all the credit for it: everybody knew that you had this disembodied genius who had helped you. If your work bombed, not entirely your fault, you know? Everyone knew your genius was kind of lame. And this is how people thought about creativity in the West for a really long time.
And then the Renaissance came and everything changed, and we had this big idea, and the big idea was: Let's put the individual human being at the center of the universe above all gods and mysteries, and there's no more room for mystical creatures who take dictation from the divine. And it's the beginning of rational humanism, and people started to believe that creativity came completely from the self of the individual. And for the first time in history, you start to hear people referring to this or that artist as being a genius rather than having a genius.

And I got to tell you, I think that was a huge error. You know, I think that allowing somebody, like one mere person to believe that he or she is like, the vessel you know, like the font and the essence and the source of all divine, creative, unknowable, eternal mystery is just a smidge too much responsibility to put on one fragile, human psyche. It's like asking somebody to swallow the sun, you know. It just completely warps and distorts egos, and it creates all these unmanageable expectations about performance. And I think the pressure of that has been killing off our artists for the last 500 years.
And, if this is true, and I think it is true, the question becomes, what now? Can we do this differently? Maybe go back to some more ancient understanding about the relationship between humans and the creative mystery. Maybe not. Maybe we can't just erase 500 years of rational humanistic thought in one 18 minute speech. And there's probably people in this audience who would raise really legitimate scientific suspicions about the notion of, basically fairies who follow people around like rubbing fairy juice on their projects and stuff. I'm not, probably, going to bring you all along with me on this.
But the question that I kind of want to pose is, you know, why not? Why not think about it this way? Because it makes as much sense as anything else I have ever heard in terms of explaining the utter maddening capriciousness of the creative process. A process which, as anybody who has ever tried to make something, which is to say as, basically, everyone here knows, does not always behave rationally and, in fact, can sometimes feel downright paranormal.
I had this encounter recently where I met the extraordinary American poet Ruth Stone, who's now in her 90s, but she's been a poet her entire life. And she told me that when she was growing up in rural Virginia, she would be out working in the fields, and she said she would like feel and hear a poem coming at her from over the landscape. And she said it was like a thunderous train of air. And it would come barreling down at her over the landscape. And when she felt it coming, because it would shake the earth under her feet, she knew that she had only one thing to do at that point, and that was to – in her words – "run like hell". And she would run like hell to the house and she would be getting chased by this poem, and the whole deal was that she had to get to a piece of paper and a pencil fast enough so that when it thundered through her, she could collect it and grab it on the page. And other times she wouldn't be fast enough, so she'd be running and running and running, and she wouldn't get to the house and the poem would barrel through her and she would miss it and she said it would continue on across the landscape, looking – as she put it – "for another poet". And then there were these times – this is the piece I never forgot – she said that there were moments where she would almost miss it, right? So, she's running to the house and she's looking for the paper and the poem passes through her, and she grabs a pencil just as it's going through her, and then she said, it was like she would reach out with her other hand and she would catch it. She would catch the poem by its tail, and she would pull it backwards into her body as she was transcribing on the page. And in these instances, the poem would come up on the page perfect and intact but backwards, from the last word to the first. (Laughter)
So when I heard that I was like ... that's uncanny. That's exactly what my creative process is like. (Laughter)

That's not all what my creative process is ... I'm not the pipeline, you know! I'm a mule, and the way that I have to work is that I have to get up at the same time every day, and like sweat and labor and barrel through it really awkwardly. But even I, in my mulishness, even I have brushed up against that thing, at times. And I would imagine that a lot of you have too. You know, even I have had work or ideas come through me from a source that I honestly cannot identify. And what is that thing? And how are we to relate to it in a way that will not make us lose our minds, but, in fact, might actually keep us sane?
And for me, the best contemporary example, that I have of how to do that, is the musician Tom Waits, who I got to interview several years ago on a magazine assignment. And we were talking about this, and you know, Tom, for most of his life he was pretty much the embodiment of the tormented contemporary modern artist, trying to control and manage and dominate these sort of uncontrollable creative impulses that were totally internalized.
But then he got older, he got calmer, and one day he was driving down the freeway in Los Angeles he told me, and this is when it all changed for him. And he's speeding along, and all of a sudden he hears this little fragment of melody, that comes into his head as inspiration often comes, elusive and tantalizing, and he wants it, you know, it's gorgeous, and he longs for it, but he has no way to get it. He doesn't have a piece of paper, he doesn't have a pencil, he doesn't have a tape recorder. So he starts to feel all of that old anxiety start to rise in him like: "I'm going to lose this thing, and then I'm going to be haunted by this song forever. I'm not good enough, and I can't do it." And instead of panicking, he just stopped. He just stopped that whole mental process and he did something completely novel. He just looked up at the sky, and he said, "Excuse me, can you not see that I'm driving?" (Laughter) "Do I look like I can write down a song right now? If you really want to exist, come back at a more opportune moment when I can take care of you. Otherwise, go bother somebody else today. Go bother Leonard Cohen."
And his whole work process changed after that. Not the work, the work was still oftentimes as dark as ever. But the process, and the heavy anxiety around it was released when he took the genie, the genius out of him where it was causing nothing but trouble, and released it kind of back where it came from, and realized that this didn't have to be this internalized, tormented thing. It could be this peculiar, wondrous, bizarre collaboration kind of conversation between Tom and the strange, external thing that was not quite Tom.
So when I heard that story it started to shift a little bit the way that I worked too, and it already saved me once. This idea, it saved me when I was in the middle of writing "Eat, Pray, Love," and I fell into one of those, sort of pits of despair that we all fall into when we're working on something and it's not coming and you start to think this is going to be a disaster, this is going to be the worst book ever written. Not just bad, but the worst book ever written. And I started to think I should just dump this project. But then I remembered Tom talking to the open air and I tried it. So I just lifted my face up from the manuscript and I directed my comments to an empty corner of the room. And I said aloud: "Listen you, thing, you and I both know that if this book isn't brilliant that is not entirely my fault, right? Because you can see that I am putting everything I have into this, I don't have anymore than this. So if you want it to be better, then you've got to show up and do your part of the deal, okay? But if you don't do that, you know what, the hell with it. I'm going to keep writing anyway because that's my job. And I would please like the record to reflect today that I showed up for my part of the job." (Laughter)

Because ... (Applause) Thank you.
In the end it's like this, okay? Centuries ago in the deserts of North Africa, people used to gather for these moonlight dances of sacred dance and music that would go on for hours and hours, until dawn. And they were always magnificent, because the dancers were professionals and they were terrific, right? But every once in a while, very rarely, something would happen, and one of these performers would actually become transcendent. And I know you know what I'm talking about, because I know you've all seen, at some point in your life, a performance like this. It was like time would stop, and the dancer would sort of step through some kind of portal and he wasn't doing anything different than he had ever done, 1,000 nights before, but everything would align. And all of a sudden, he would no longer appear to be merely human. He would be lit from within, and lit from below and all lit up on fire with divinity.
And when this happened, back then, people knew it for what it was, you know, they called it by its name. They would put their hands together and they would start to chant: "Allah, Allah, Allah, God, God, God." That's God, you know. Curious historical footnote: when the Moors invaded southern Spain, they took this custom with them and the pronunciation changed over the centuries from "Allah, Allah, Allah" to "Olé, Olé, Olé" which you still hear in bullfights and in flamenco dances. In Spain, when a performer has done something impossible and magic, "Allah, Olé, Olé, Allah, Magnificent, Bravo!" incomprehensible, there it is a glimpse of God. Which is great, because we need that.
But, the tricky bit comes the next morning for the dancer himself, when he wakes up and discovers that it's Tuesday at 11 AM, and he's no longer a glimpse of God. He's just an aging mortal with really bad knees, and maybe he's never going to ascend to that height again. And maybe nobody will ever chant God's name again as he spins, and what is he then to do with the rest of his life? This is hard. This is one of the most painful reconciliations to make in a creative life. But maybe it doesn't have to be quite so full of anguish if you never happened to believe, in the first place, that the most extraordinary aspects of your being came from you. But maybe if you just believed that they were on loan to you from some unimaginable source for some exquisite portion of your life to be passed along when you're finished, with somebody else. And, you know, if we think about it this way it starts to change everything.
This is how I've started to think, and this is certainly how I've been thinking in the last few months as I've been working on the book that will soon be published, as the dangerously, frighteningly overanticipated follow up to my freakish success.
And what I have to, sort of keep telling myself when I get really psyched out about that, is, don't be afraid. Don't be daunted. Just do your job. Continue to show up for your piece of it, whatever that might be. If your job is to dance, do your dance. If the divine, cockeyed genius assigned to your case, decides to let some sort of wonderment be glimpsed, for just one moment through your efforts, then "Olé!" And if not, do your dance anyhow. "Olé!" to you, nonetheless. I believe this and I feel that we must teach it. "Olé!" to you, nonetheless, just for having the sheer human love and stubbornness to keep showing up.
Thank you. (Applause) Thank you. (Applause) June Cohen: Olé! (Applause)

The transition had been a matter of seconds

A theme was touched on last night which is one of the centerpiece themes of aboriginal shamanism: the felt presence of some kind of alien intelligence. An intelligence that is somehow co-present with the human sense of self, for different people, in different ways, with varying degrees of intensity in different times and places. At the bedrock of shamanism is the notion that life is really finally a mystery wrapped in an enigma, but without resolution. Nevertheless as you close distance with this mystery there are a series of analogical metaphors that don't really suggest themselves but that are communicated to you by the other.
One of these analogical metaphors is the presence of an alien intellect, an organized other that is folklorically present in tradition as fairies, gnomes, elves, jinns, afreets, sprites, tree spirits – that sort of thing – and anecdotally present in rural cultures throughout the world as the poltergeist and the milk-souring fairy – these things seem to reside in a curious area that is not epistemically clearly defined for the culture.
Among aficionados of these domains the question of, "is it real or not?" is thought to be mildly tasteless. You would intuitively sense if you were drinking in an Irish pub and people began to spin leprechaun stories, that the question "is it real?" is a real bring down. It isn't really like that because the question "is it real?" can ultimately be shown to be infantile in any situation. I mean, is the Bank of America real? Immediately we realize that ordinary experience is simply assumption skating over the mystery.
But I choose to talk so much about the felt presence of the other because it was for me such an astonishing personal surprise. I was raised Roman-Catholic and indulged in the kind of theological fiddle-faddle that that involves. And then grew out of that into atheism, into agnosticism. By the time I got to college, I was reading Jean Paul Sartre, Husserl and these people. My intellectual ontogeny had followed historical phylogeny and I had arrived in the 20th century. And then having thought I had absorbed the lessons of LSD, which seemed to me to be to reinforce and confirm the theories of Freud concerning the dynamics of the psyche: that it was about repressed memory, repressed desire, sexual neurosis, parental foul-ups and the imprinting of traumatic behavior experienced in infancy.

And then someone came to me one rainy February evening, in 1967, really a mad person, a kind of a social menace and intellectual criminal. A person who had said to me only months before, "we must live as if the apocalypse has already happened." Here he was on my doorstep and he wore little black suits that he buttoned up to the throat. Anyway, he came in and he said: "here's something that you might be interested in" and brought out a sample of di-methyltryptamine that he had somehow come into contact with. And I said, "well what is it?" And he said, "well, it's short acting – it's a flash." And I said, "how long does it last?" – that was my first mistake. He said, "oh it doesn't last long." So I said, "okay, we'll do it," and we did it.
And I discovered, I had, I guess it's called a peak experience, or a core revelation, or being born again, or having your third eye opened, or something, which was a revelation of an alien dimension: a brightly lit, inhabited, non three-dimensional, self-contorting, sustained, organic, linguistically intending modality that couldn't be stopped or held back or denied. I mean, I sank to the floor ... I couldn't move. I had become a disystolic hallucination of tumbling forward into these fractal geometric spaces made of light, and then I found myself in the sort of auric equivalent of the Pope's private chapel, and there were insect elf machines proffering strange little tablets with strange writing on them. And I was aghast, completely - appalled - because the transition had been a matter of seconds and my entire expectation of the nature of the world was being shredded in front of me. I've never actually gotten over it.
And it all went on: they were speaking in some kind of ... there were these self-transforming machine-elf creatures, were speaking in some kind of colored language which condensed into rotating machines that were like Faberge eggs, but crafted out of luminescent super-conducting ceramics, and liquid crystal gels, and all this stuff was just so weird, and so alien, and so "un-english-able" that I felt like it was a complete shock. I experienced the literal turning inside-out of the intellectual universe and I had come to this – I thought – fairly intellectually prepared: a kid, but nevertheless double-Scorpio, art history major, Hieronymus Bosch fan, Moby Dick, William Burroughs.
And as I came down ... this went on for two or three minutes, this situation of disincarnate dimensions orthogonal to reality engulfing me. And then as I came out of it, and the room sort of re-assembled itself, I said: "I can't believe it. It's impossible. It's im-possible!" That to call that a "drug" is ridiculous. It means that you just don't know, you don't have a word for it and so you putter around and you come upon this very sloppy concept of something which goes into your body and there's a change – it's not like that, it's like being struck by noetic lightning.

The other thing about it, which astonished me, was: there is no clue in this world, you know. In the carpets of Central Asia, in the myths of the Maya, in the visions of an Archembolo or a Fra Angelico or a Bosch – there is not a hint, not a clue, not an atom of the presence of this thing. When you look at the religious hierophanies of the human species, it doesn't have the same vibe, it doesn't the same charge. Religion is all about dissolving into unitary states of love and trans-linguistic oceanic unity and this sort of thing. This was not like that. This was more multiplistic than the universe that we share with each other. It was almost like the victory of neo-Platonic metaphysics – everything had become made out of a fourth-dimensional tesseractual mosaic of energy.
So, I was quite knocked off my feet and set myself the goal of understanding this. There was really no choice, you see? And I don't know how it hits other people. I mean, there are many things that can be said about introducing a chemical into your body. They've shown that certain people are 50,000 times more sensitive to the odor of certain compounds than other people. And part of the unique genetic heritage of each of us are our complement of synaptic receptors for psycho-active alkaloids. So that there may be something to the notion that the Celts tend to be poets, that certain peoples tend to be expressive in certain artistic modes, or certain senses seem to be accentuated for certain human sub-groups. But whatever the explanation for how it hit me, I felt it like a call: there was no turning back from trying to understand that, because there is no place for it in our world and yet it is overwhelmingly, existentially real. You see? And easily accessed. I'm not peddling that you have to go some place in India with poor sanitation and put yourself at somebody's feet for a dozen years or something like that. The enunciation of the presence of this dimension should inspire some kind of coming to terms with it. It's preposterous that we can entertain in our popular journalism the titillation of the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, and prop up all these reductionist guys and trot them out to give the statistics on the distribution of G-type stars, and all this sort of thing. Because the fact is, what blinds us to the presence of alien intelligence is linguistic and cultural bias operating on ourselves. The world which we perceive is a tiny fraction of the world which we can perceive, which is a tiny fraction of the perceivable world. You see?

We operate on a very narrow slice based on cultural conventions. So the important thing, if synergizing progress is the notion to be maximized – and I think, it's the notion to be maximized – is trying to locate the blind spot in the culture: the place where the culture isn't looking, because it dare not. Because if it were to look there, its previous values would dissolve. You see? And I think, for Western civilization that place is the psychedelic experience as it emerges out of nature. And as human societies interact with the psychedelic experience in nature, they inevitably secrete the institution of shamanism. Like a pearl around a sand grain, a nexus point, a loci of interdimensional data flow, which is really what it is. It's the point that under certain conditions, which have to do with these molecules that have evolved in these species which have this weirdly quasi-symbiotic relationship to our species, you punch through the veil! You know, Melville said: "if you would strike, strike through the mask." And that's what's done, you strike through the mask of the coordinates of apparent reality. And then, this thing is there which to me is a miracle. It transcended any miracle I could ever ask for, because it not only had the quality of a miracle as I imagined it, it had the quality of a miracle as I could not have imagined it. It was entirely charged with the energy of the other. It had the ambiguity of a pun: a kind of zany, impossible, improbable, hysterical revelation of the joke, the self-contradiction, the provisional nature of it all – that it really is a Marx Brothers movie in some sense.

So I pursued it. First to Nepal, and involvement with pre-Buddhist shamanism in Tibet. The thing that puzzled me most – I guess because I was an art historian – was this absence of the theme in the artistic productions of human kind. I felt that maybe there was a trace of it in the artistic conceptions of the old pantheon of Tibetan shamanism. And that Central Asian Tibetan shamanism had actually created astronauts of inner space that had gotten good recon on this same area. The Dharmapalas, the guardians of the Dharma, are not Buddhist deities per se, they are autochonous Tibetan folk demons that protect the Dharma by virtue of the fact of having been overcome in magical battles by great Buddhist saints who came to Tibet. In fact, there are, or were before the Chinese occupation, monasteries in Tibet where the vow of fealty to the Dharma, on the part of the Dharmapala, had to be renewed by the monks every 24 hours or the thing would run amok and be on its own and bust up the countryside – I'm just telling you what they told me.
It seemed to me that the raw sense of the shamanically accessed demonic realm was there, and I also saw traces in Hellenistic gnosticism and alchemy. But such thin traces. So I went to Nepal, immersed myself in those studies, and decided ultimately that it was inaccessible. I wasn't sure whether it was there or not. And then I placed myself in the context of nature by moving my sphere of operations to eastern Indonesia. To the climaxed, continental rain forests of the ancient continent of Sundaland. You see Indonesia was a continent until as recently as 120,000 years ago. And then with the melting of the glaciers and the subsidence of the land, it became a vast group of islands. It was my good fortune, or the fortune of my fate – because it was prudent for me at that time in the late sixties to remain outside the United States – and so I sort of had to become the hero I had pretended to my friends that I was. Which I wasn't, I had an around-the-world air ticket and was entirely a preppie poseur, but suddenly, return was not a possibility. So I became, and my apologies to Buddhists in the audience, a professional butterfly collector, and I pursued this blood sport for many months in these remote montane jungles of eastern Indonesia.
And it was there that the missing link in the quest for the resolution of the meaning of DMT and spirit fell into place. Because I saw what most of us only see on National Geographic specials, which is the real fact of the rain forest, the real fact of organic nature, and how nature is communication. Not only are the species that comprise the biota linked by pheromones and acoustical signals and color signals and other various methods by which communication is seeping around. In fact, nature ultimately resolves itself into a self-reflecting, syntactical metasystem – you can pursue this right down to the DNA. DNA working as it does with nucleotide sequences that code – code, right? code that means arbitrarily assign association – code for certain amino acids: it means that organic objects are essentially utterances in three dimensional space and express of some kind of universally distributed linguistic intent. This is what it means when it says, "In the beginning was the word." Nature is that word. This infinitely self-adumbrating, fractal, syntactical hallucination that has an infinite number of facets for potential regarding and self-regarding.

And having said all of this, I might invoke here Godel's Incompleteness Theorem, which as I'm sure many of you know was Kurt Godel's brilliant contribution to theoretical mathematics where he showed that the possible set of true formal statements, generated by any formal system, exceeded the possible set of true formal statements, which the rules of that system allowed. He showed this for simple arithmetic. And what this means, friends, is that what was called truth up until the beginning of the twentieth century, is absolutely impossible – that's what Godel's Incompleteness Theorem secures. It shows that there is no ultimate closure in an effort to describe.
And so in a way, my take on nature, and culture, and man, is that human language is a meta-linguistic system, generated out of the necessary formal incompleteness of nature. You see? If that nature is a self-describing genetic language and yet out of it arises something which is not formally predicted by its constraints and rules. There's a symmetry break there, and a so-called emergent property comes into view. This emergent property is our unique ability to provisionally code sound to meaning, so that we then can freely command and reconstruct the world. We imagine that we do this for our own purposes of communication.
The analysis that I'm suggesting would seem to indicate that actually we do it, because we are complicated enzyme systems that are moving linguistic charge around inside some kind of metasystem. A metasystem that is very important for the emergence of new order out of nature. You see? And I talked about that a little last night: the fact, that it is contrived, provisional, is very interesting. It doesn't arise out of the gene structure. Rather it is agreed upon by individuals who are living at the time that the linguistic structure, whatever it is, emerges into consciousness. Since individuals are replaced, the language is much more in flux than the genome. You see? The genetic component of an organism is a physical structure, stabilized by atomic bonds, possibly stabilized by a phenomenon like room-temperature's superconductivity. The way nature works is to conserve the genes. And so molecular machinery has evolved to do that. But there is no mechanism in nature with the same kind of binding force that conserves meaning. Meaning is some kind of freely-commanded, open-ended, self-evolving system. The rules are that there are no rules.
Meaning consequently addresses itself to a much larger potential modality of expression than the genes. The genes basically repeat themselves, over and over. Almost like Homeric poetry, where the idea is that it be memorized and repeated. And that's what sexuality is about, is memorizing and repeating gene structures, handing on parts of the story. But the epigenetic domain is different, the creation of linguistic systems, where meaning can be freely commanded, allows very rapid evolution of cultural norms.

And what I suggested last night and want to say more about it tonight is, that this process is mediated by plants. It is synergized in human beings by plants of all sorts. I mean, we are obsessed with drugs and short-term spectacular effects, but think about the effect on a culture of the presence or absence of say: sugar, or the presence or absence of coffee. What human culture can essentially be seen to be, is a series of plant-established developmental creodes for a higher mammal. The fact that we are omnivorous lays us open for the formation of weird relationships to things in our food chain. Everybody is taught in school that the Renaissance, the close of the Middle Ages, the rise of urban culture all had to do with the search for spices, right? Bringing spices back to Europe. Why was it so important, you know, that a drive to simply broaden the palate of Europe is given credit for the re-defining of post-medieval civilization? Very strange.
Hofmann and Ruck and Wasson showed that the Eleusinian mysteries, which were the philosophical and experiential linchpin of the ancient world's cosmology, the Hellenistic cosmology, was a cult of ergotized beer. There every September at Eleusis, this mystery was carried out, and everyone who was anyone participated in it. The rule was that you only got to do it once in your life so you had only one opportunity to understand it.
The point is clear: as you look in human culture in all times and places, the way in which our cultural institutions have been molded by these so-called tertiary compounds in plants is very suggestive. It seems to me that the felt presence of the other, the alien intelligence felt as being from outer space, is actually co-present with us on this earth. And that the problem is not the finding of it, but the recognizing of it when it is seen. In the same way that in the present cultural crisis everyone is crying "answers, answers, we have to have answers," the fact is we have the answers. The question is to face the answers.
The answer to self-empowerment lies in the psychedelic experience. The answer to dissolving the hierarchically-imposed set of mythical conventions that disempower us, lies in the psychedelic experience. Because what is really happening is a return to the primacy of feeling. And feeling is not something you convey to people the way you convey facts to them. Facts can be handed down every week through Time magazine, and the latest issue of Science News and Nature. But feelings will not lend themselves to that marketable, hierarchically-distributed system. And consequently, feelings represent a backwash against that. Yet feeling is the modality in which we all operate. So as long as we are under the umbrella of the print-created, linear, post-medieval institutions that promote the myth of the public, the notion of the atomic individual, the notion that we are all alike, basically, then we are going to be unempowered.
The amazing thing to me about the psychedelic experience, is that it can be kept under wraps. That people don't insist. That somehow we're leaving it to experts to figure it out. But did you know that the experts are not allowed to work it out? That in this particular area, the entire human race has been relegated to an infantile status. It is not really professionally possible to do work with these things. Nevertheless, our cultural crisis is deepening ...

Columbia is a very interesting word

Jordan Maxwell

"Occult is simply a word meaning hidden, and so much of our powers in this world and the way things work are hidden. And the more one looks at this subject of how the world actually works, you begin to see that there is a magical system, and I'm telling you, there really is a magical system dominating the world of the Western civilization.
For 1000 years before the Roman empire existed, in Northern europe, basically Western europe, there was a magical priesthood called the Druids, and the Druids still even exist to this day. It was a very legitimate political, social, educational, religious institution dominating Europe for thousands of years, and they were refered to as the Druids. They were actually from the Phoenician Canaanites system in the Middle East. The Phoenician Canaanites formed the basis for the ancient Druidic system, and that's even older. But in the ancient Druidic system there were many powerful symbols and emblems.
One of the most interesting symbols in Druidism was the "Magic One" like Merlin the magician with his Magic One. Magic Ones were always made out of the wood of a holy tree, was made out of holy wood, and we're still seeing the magic of the wood of the holy tree: Hollywood, motion pictures, television. Once you begin to see the symbols and realize that the symbols for the national cults of arms, for countries, the flags, the seals, the presidential seals, the logos and emblems that are in corporations, especially the corporate emblems for motion pictures and television companies like Columbia Broadcasting System. CBS has the eye.

The Columbian system goes back to the Columbian faction of the Illuminati, back in the early 1700s, not the late 17th. You began to see why Space Shuttle is called Columbia. You have Columbia University, Columbia Pictures, Columbia Broadcasting. Columbia is a very interesting word, and it's connected to the Jesuits. Incidently, the Jesuits are very pronouncely involved in the destiny of this country. The Jesuit order is very much involved in the founding of this country and the direction of its politics. Georgetown University, from which many of the presidents and big shots in government get their education, is a Jesuit university.
Once you begin to see how words and terms and symbols are used, and of course symbols are extraordinarily important in world affairs. If you don't think so, if you don't understand the concept of how important symbols are, put a swastika on your arm and go to your local synagoge and watch the reaction you get. Symbols mean things to people, and the powers that be in this world have set up a world of symbols and emblembs and terms and catch phrases, and once you understand how this system works, it's fascinating! Because for the first time, the world opens up to you a whole new perspective on how government works, on how banks work, on how institutions and education ... why we have something called "The Police". Where does the word "Sheriff" come from? Why do you have "go-vern-ment" …
Once you begin to see how these words are used and put together, all of the sudden it opens up a whole new perspective on how stuff is happening. Because in the world today most people look at the things which are happening in this world and they can't make heads and tails out of it. It doesn't make any sense at all. It's destructive, it's lunacy, it's chaos. But in point of fact, the things which are happening in this world are not chaos at all. It is very well planned, organized and directed. There is an hidden agenda, so to speak. […] The CIA was originally founded by men who are members of an order called the Knights of Malta. It is a Roman secret society of powerful freemasons who have operated in Europe for many many hundreds of years."

Supreme Knight appointed to board of Vatican bank

Vatican City, September 23, 2009) The Commission of Cardinals which oversees the activities of the Vatican's bank, formally called the Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), has renewed the membership of the institute's board and made a few new appointments. Among the new appointees is the head of the Knights of Columbus Carl A. Anderson.
The IOR is a financial institution governed by a Board of Superintendence, which is, in turn, regulated by a Commission of Cardinals led by Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State. The main function of the institute is to manage bank accounts for religious orders and Catholic associations.
The Supreme Knight's appointment to the IOR is the latest of his Vatican appointments, which include being appointed a member of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, as well as to the Pontifical Council for the Family. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI appointed him as a consultor to the the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.
Mr. Anderson currently serves on the the Board of Trustees of the Catholic University of America and the the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. He is also a member of the bar of the District of Columbia and is admitted to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court.
He will be serving the IOR alongside newly appointed President of the Board Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, an Italian banking magnate, and vice president Ronaldo Hermann Schmitz of Germany.

Marx hatte Recht, sagt der Vatikan

Rom, Nähe Vatikanstadt, 21. Oktober '09) Der Vatikan fordert eine Rückbesinnung auf die Theorien von Karl Marx. Der Philosoph "kann nicht als überholt gelten", mahnte die Vatikanzeitung "Osservatore Romano" am Mittwoch. Sozialistische Diktaturen hätten die Lehren des Kapitalismuskritikers "bis zur Unkenntlichkeit entstellt", schreibt der deutsche Jesuit Georg Sans von der Päpstlichen Gregoriana-Universität.
Papst Benedikt XVI. würdigte Karl Marx (1818-1883) wegen dessen "eingehender Genauigkeit" sowie "sprachlicher und denkerischer Kraft" bereits 2007 in seiner zweiten Enzyklika "Spe salvi" (Durch Hoffnung gerettet).
Nach Auffassung des Historikers Sans muss zwischen dem "Marx der Kommunistischen Partei und dem wahren Gesicht des Trierer Philosophen" unterschieden werden. Die materialistische Geschichtsauffassung des Autors von "Das Kapital" hält Sans für einseitig. Analysen über Entfremdung in der Arbeit sowie die Herkunft des Profits hingegen hätten seiner Ansicht nach nichts von ihrer Aktualität eingebüßt.
Dazu gehöre ferner Marx' Auffassung, dass Lohnarbeit allein als Mittel zum physischen Lebenserhalt nicht dem Wesen des Menschen entspreche. Auch habe der Philosoph Unterschiede zwischen Armut und Reichtum zu Recht als Ausdruck von Strukturen gesehen, die von Menschen geschaffen und nicht naturgegeben seien, schreibt Sans.

Are you a Patriot or a Coadjutor?

Brian David Andersen

As America and other countries slide into economic decline with high unemployment, lethal created food shortages, rising prices, loss of freedoms and liberties such as negating the fourth amendment and poor morale, all citizens need to learn how we truly and really evolved into this pitiful predicament and what can be done to turn the situation around. The demise of America is partially due to forces from within but is mostly due to outside Interferences and influences. In his famous "monolithic conspiracy" speech of 1962, President John F. Kennedy addressed the true causes of our current dire situation. The booklet is an extension and a continuation of Kennedy's insightful speech and provides information and answers to both the issues stated above.

The secret and veiled activities and successes of the Jesuits and the Vatican are vast topics stretching over 500 years and have been detailed in volumes of books. Even a cursory examination of the facts and historical data that are not discussed or presented in traditional education and the corporate and alternative media, compels any open hearted and minded investigator to take notice.
On May 14, 2008, an historic and pivotal event took place on alternative radio/internet media. While host Alex Jones of Infowars.com interviewed his guest, Pastor David J. Smith during the second, third and fourth hours, Jones uttered the most important phrase in American and world events: "The Catholic Church is right at the top of the pyramid" (as related to the installation of a New World Order).
This article adamantly supports the Jones declaration and other additional ground breaking and shaking statements made by Jones and his guest on the May 14, 2008 broadcast. However will Alex and other hosts on the Genesis Communications Network such as Joyce Riley, Dave von Kleist, Jack Blood, Jim Fetzer, Kevin Barrett, Bill Deagle, Webster Tarpley, Michael Rivero, Jeff Rense and other "alternative" outlets thoroughly and completely communicate the Alex Jones monumental declaration and all the related implications, ramifications and nuisances to their listeners and viewers?
No message is more important and critical than the exposure of the Jesuits and the Vatican as the originators and architects of the New World Order. The Jesuits and the Vatican desire to put all humans under a police state while forcing you, me and everyone else to worship the Pope.
Alex Jones has been a guest on Coast to Coast with George Noory and countless other radio and television programs such as CNN and Jeff Rense. Will Noory, Rense and other radio and television hosts take the cue from Jones to expose the truth and reality related to the intentions, goals and successes of the Jesuits and the Vatican? Are coveted media personalities, such as Noory, Rense, Oprah Winfrey and Keith Olberman, who do not address and remain silent about the intentions and goals of the Jesuits and Vatican, guilty of supporting the criminal tornado that desires to suck all humans into the dictatorial whirlpool powers of the Pope? The answer to this question is desired by countless persons.

Yes, 500 plus years of tyranny and terror

During the 500 plus years of tyranny and terror by the Jesuits, they have been expelled from over 30 countries including France and Japan for their attempts and successes at infiltrating, influencing, interfering and manipulating in the political, military and economic arenas of the sovereign nations. This reality is not a conspiracy theory but a fact.
The Society of Jesus founding documents and policy papers were principally written in 1534 by Saint Ignatius of Loyola, also known as Íñigo Oñaz López de Loyola. The stated goals of the Jesuits are to crush the protestant reformation and put all humans on Earth under the rule of the Vatican Pope. This reality is not a conspiracy theory but a fact. Check out the facts and evidence.
Numerous individuals and groups believe the world's problems are based in the lust for power and money. But who truly has the longest and bloodiest history of lusting for control, power and money more than any group or organization on planet Earth? No country, group or organization comes anywhere close to the diabolical commitments, zealous pursuits and grotesque actions as the Jesuits in manipulating and controlling your money, emotions, physical movements and spiritual beliefs. Check out the facts and evidence revealed in this article or listen to the Alex Jones radio segment of May 14, 2008 on GCN. Why do individuals and alternative radio programs only cover the issue of Israel's influence on United States but do not address the far more powerful influence of the Jesuits and Vatican on the United States? A book or volumes of books could be or have been written on the topics briefly addressed below and related to the crimes committed by the Jesuits and the Vatican.

The facts for this article start with the action taken by the Vatican in the year 1778. Two years after the American colonists posted the Declaration of Independence, the Vatican declared an Edict that condemned the United States Constitutional Republic as an abomination, wickedness and sin that must be destroyed by any means possible.
The 1778 Vatican Edict has never been withdrawn, apologized for or modified. Why is this fact with the supporting documents not taught in private and public schools?
Eighty-nine years after the condemning Edict was released, all diplomatic ties were severed with the Vatican in 1867. The severe action was taken because Vatican had blatantly interfered with the political processes within the United States for nearly nine decades and more specifically, for protecting co-conspirator John Surratt after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Why was the Monroe Doctrine of non-interference drafted and declared? As a follow-up to the 1778 Edict, the Vatican put on a conclave that specifically addressed and planned for a response to the threat posed by the Constitutional Republic of the United States.
The Vatican conclave concluded that one way to counter the Constitutional Republic was to infiltrate and influence all other countries in North, Central and South America. When American political leaders were informed of the Vatican goals, Thomas Jefferson, whose private papers are full of references to the threat posed by the Jesuits, and others wrote the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine was a direct response to the conclusions and goals stated in the Vatican conclave.

Follow the money

The Vatican, with the Jesuits functioning as its enforcers, turned their attention to taking over the money supply of America by creating a central bank that was vehemently opposed by President Andrew Jackson. An assassin, whose two guns both misfired while aimed at President Andrew Jackson, had indisputable ties and connections to the Jesuits.
President James Buchanan (1856) was convinced that President's William Harrison (1840) and Zachary Taylor (1848) were murdered by the Jesuits slyly administrating lethal doses of arsenic. Taylor and Harrison were pro-freedom, against a central bank and very anti-Jesuit/Vatican. President Buchanan always kept an antidote for arsenic poisoning within close proximity. While attending a celebration for the birthday of George Washington, 38 persons plus Buchanan drank out of a punch bowl. Within 24 hours all 38 persons were dead due to a massive dose of arsenic poisoning. Buchannan survived because he directed his physicians on how to administer the emergency antidote.
The final straw for American politicians was all the blatant evidence for the involvement of the Jesuits in the Lincoln assassination therefore all diplomatic relations were severed with the Vatican. Did you know that private citizen and lawyer Abe Lincoln defended a person in a criminal trial who was being falsely persecuted by the Jesuits? The Jesuits were enraged by Abe's actions. Did you know one of the key participants in the Lincoln assassination fled to and was protected by the Vatican because he was a Papal Guard? The Jesuit conspirator's name was John Surratt.

Because the United States legal system is based upon due process of law (or was before the Jesuit written Patriot Act), President Andrew Johnson, the U.S. Congress and the Supreme Court could not simply expel and deport the Jesuits as monarchies had done in Europe and Asia prior to 1867. Legal expulsion proceedings against the Jesuits would have taken decades and had the probabilities of being thwarted by Jesuits. The costs and the risks packing up and sending the Jesuits back to the Vatican via legislation and legal court proceedings were too high. Dispatching a military expedition to Rome to capture or wipe the Vatican leaders would have ignited a civil and an international world war ... and America was weary of war in 1867. To the regret of the Unites States political leaders in the post Civil War era, the most severe action they could take against the Jesuits was breaking all diplomatic ties with the Vatican. The ties remained severed until President Ronald Reagan (1980) overseen by key Knights of Malta within his cabinet, willingly re-established diplomatic ties in a false exchange for the Vatican's assistance in waging a monetary and economic war against the old Soviet Union. Reagan died having perpetrated the illusion that his diplomatically reconnecting the United States to the Vatican somehow was responsible for the Berlin Wall and communism being dismantled.
American political leaders of 1867 wanted and tried to send a message to the Vatican and the world by breaking all diplomatic relations but the message only enraged the Vatican. The crusade to destroy America and put it under the rule of the Pope by the Jesuit henchmen did not miss a step by the United States cutting all diplomatic ties with the Vatican.
Before reestablishing ties with Vatican in his delusional rush to wipe-out communism, did Reagan have a clue about the 500 year history of the Jesuits and the Vatican? Probably Reagan could not have had any insight or knowledge because there is not much political, intellectual and spiritual awareness on Hollywood/New York movie sets. The out-of-touch with reality motion picture, radio, music and television production locations are under the strict watchful eye and control of the Jesuits. The J-Boys absolutely love and worship Star Wars featuring their beloved brother Darth Vader (Jesuits) and the Emperor (Vatican Pope). Get a clue grasshopper as the truth is hidden in plain sight by the masters of deceit and slight of hand regardless if the packaged communication is presented as educational, hard news or fiction.
Samuel Morse who created the Morse Code wrote numerous public papers on the threat of Jesuits to the United States. In the public and private papers of most of the founding fathers and as well as business and political leaders before 1870, the threat posed by the Jesuits and Vatican to the United States were frequently addressed with alarm and concern. Why are these facts with the supporting documents not taught in private and public schools?

Jesuits took control of American money

The Jesuits were very involved with all the intrigue and manipulations related to the passing of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the establishment of the Internal Revenue Service. Again, countless facts could fill volumes of books on how the Jesuits stole America's duty to print money.
Taking control of America's money supply by transferring the printing of dollars to a private central bank was a goal of the Jesuits since the Declaration of Independence was written 1776. The Jesuits stealthy and deadly efforts for 137 years finally paid off. The Federal Reserve Act passed in the last minutes of the U.S. Congressional session on December 23, 1913. The anti-constitutional legislation was passed due to the urging of President Woodrow Wilson (1912) under the direction of his private secretary, Knight of Columbus Joseph M. Tumulty. Both Wilson and Tumulty were under the control of the first "American Pope", Baltimore Archbishop James Cardinal Gibbons. And Gibbons could have cared less if Wilson and Tumulty went to Confession or received Holy Communion.
A small minority quorum of Jesuit influenced political leaders voted for the Federal Reserve Act as the majority of non-Jesuit influenced political leaders were away from Washington D.C. while celebrating the holidays. In his memoirs shortly before he died, President Woodrow Wilson bitterly and sorrowfully regretted supporting and signing the Federal Reserve Act. Wilson admitted betraying and destroying America. Wilson was also the first American president to visit and kiss the ring the Pope of Rome in the Vatican subsequent to the Versailles Treaty after World War I.

The Jesuits lured key wealthy Americans who were opposed the Federal Reserve Act onto the ill fated Titanic that was being navigated by Captain Edward J. Smith who was educated and installed into his position by the Jesuits. Survivors of the Titanic stated the ship was streaking at full steam and purposely turned into the direct path of a large iceberg. According to the survivors, had the Jesuit educated captain been going a slower speed and not intentionally turned into a direct intercept path with a large iceberg, the Titanic would still be afloat today. There is more intrigue and facts that could fill volumes of books related to the sabotage of the Titanic.
Jesuit financier J.P. Morgan was used as bait to lure wealthy Americans opposed to the Federal Reserve Act onto the maiden voyage of Titanic as it departed England. At the last moment, J.P. was a no show at the boarding dock ... Who were the wealthy American passengers on the Titanic who opposed the Federal Reserve Act? Check out the facts and evidence.
The Federal Reserve Act shifted the printing of money from the United States Treasury Department to a privately owned group called the Federal Reserve. The United States government borrows money from a private corporation to function, pay bills and most importantly, wage wars ... deadly conflicts that always benefit the Jesuits and the Vatican. A majority the individuals of this group were educated by or heavily connected to and installed into their positions of corporate power by none other than the Jesuits.
When the Treasury Department printed money that was backed by silver or gold the United States fiscal budget had to stay balanced and waging war was a losing enterprise that would bankrupt the United States. The Federal Reserve prints money out of thin air (fiat currency called "Federal Reserve Notes") with no fiscal responsibility therefore the United States government wages war by borrowing money from the Federal Reserve ... just exactly what the Jesuits lusted for and accomplished.

There is so much overwhelming evidence for the involvement of the Vatican in the installations of FDR, Stalin, Hitler (enabling the Nazis to escape to South America) and their participation in the genocide that occurred in Croatia during the 1930s to 40s. Did you know the Vatican owns two-thirds of the property in Jerusalem and one-third of the land possession of the land by the Vatican was part of the original foundation and establishment of Israel? Will we see in our lifetime, the attempted transfer of the seat of the Catholic Church from Rome to Jerusalem where a massive new temple will be built as intended by the Jesuit Order since the 16th Century?
Stalin, who was educated and installed into power by the Jesuits, genocided millions of Russian Orthodox Christians whose descendants would have refused to convert to the Catholic faith once the New World Order was installed in the 21st Century. Similar operations were conducted by Jesuit educated and Jesuit/CIA installed Mao Zedong and Fidel Castro in their respective countries. Ninety-five percent of the notorious public and private political personalities and criminals over the past 300 years have been nurtured, educated, installed and protected by the Jesuits.

New York Archbishop Cardinal Francis Spellman hauntingly visited South Vietnam three times in the 1960s and blessed the Americans as "Soldiers of Christ". Ngo Dinh Diem, the CIA-backed military dictator of South Vietnam was a Roman Catholic whose one brother was the Catholic Archbishop of Hue and whose other brother was the head of the South Vietnam Secret Police (nepotism at is maximum). In an interesting twist of Jesuit irony, Diem's relative, Viet Dinh, was a co-author of the Patriot Act composed at Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Dinh was also educated (brainwashed) at Georgetown University after escaping as a youth to the United States after the fall of South Vietnam.
Jesuit installed dictator Ngo Dinh Diem of South Vietnam conducted a brutal genocide for Cardinal Spellman (guided by the Jesuits at Fordham University) against the Buddhists while using U.S. and South Vietnam troops and supplies. The money to wage the Vietnam War on the Buddhists was loaned to the United States government by the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank that was established and controlled by the Jesuits via the Pope's Knights of Malta. In fact, Fordham's Jesuit Cardinal Avery Dulles, whose father was Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, is also a Knight of Malta. Also the monies to wage World Wars I and II were loaned to the United States by the Jesuit controlled Federal Reserve Bank.
Had the Treasury Department been the only entity printing money for the past 95 years with silver and gold reserves, the United States could have not created funds out of thin air to wage hot and cold wars and subversive operations against Japan, Germany, Italy, Korea, Russia, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Grenada, Panama, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and countless other wasteful political and military enterprises that supported and executed the plans and goals of the Jesuits. Yes, the reality is the Unites States citizenry and military with "funny money funding" by the Federal Reserve Bank have been played and strung along as chumps for the Jesuit/Vatican New World Order.

Jesuit extermination targets disguised as wars on communism and terror

The Jesuit experimental targets for extermination in the 1960s were Buddhists ... the real Jesuit targets for extermination during the first part of the 21st Century are Moslems sects who will refuse to convert to the Catholic faith after the New World Order has been installed. Once more, public ignorance and brainwashing and blind obedience by the military services of the United States are serving the desires and goals of the Jesuits and the Vatican. How long will this madness continue?
Pedophile Jesuit priests who were exposed and caught during the 1960s silently transferred and escaped to the state of Alaska where they continued their criminal abuses against children. Victims filed a class action lawsuit in 2000 and in 2006 the Jesuits settled for 600 million dollars. Not one-word of the record settlement was covered in the corporate or alternative media. The humongous settlement is only a tip of the criminal abuse iceberg by the Jesuits against children.
Carroll Quigley, the dear friend of Knight of Malta and pro-Nazi Jesuit priest Edmund Walsh, was mentor of Bill Clinton and numerous other elitists. Quigley, who strongly promoted the foundations for one-world government, was educated and taught at Jesuit Georgetown University. Quigley was a member of Office of Strategic Services and was a liaison between the U.S. Government and the Vatican during World War II.
What do Quigley, Clinton and countless elitists have in common with the Neo Cons in the Bush Administration, key leaders of all national and international intelligence agencies and the Knights of Malta that gave us the debacles of 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran? All of the individuals were educated and/or significantly influenced by or heavily connected in some manner to Jesuit Universities. The Center for Strategic Studies at Georgetown University is hub for all Jesuit activities in the United States.
The Jesuits, Vatican and Catholic Church have direct influences in encouraging poor citizens of Mexico to illegally enter the United States.
Again and most emphatically, the mind/soul numbing and anti-constitutional and anti-freedom Patriot Act was written by a Vietnamese immigrant educated and employed by Jesuit Georgetown University. Check out the facts and evidence.

Jesuits control the cutting edge of technology and science

All the major telescopes around the world are owned by the Vatican and administrated by Jesuits. Is Planet X real or a Jesuit hoax? Is the 2012 paranoia a Jesuit hoax to herd the populace into a New World Order? The facts say the answer is "hoax" to both questions.
Is blaming global warming on carbon emissions a reality or a Jesuit fraud to create a global tax that will further finance the New World Order? The global warming alarmists who again have close ties to the Jesuits avoid the issue of how carbon emissions are polluting the air of our planet and ignore the scientific proofs that the entire solar system is warming due to the Sun. The Jesuit spokespersons also do not promote replacing gas combustion engines with electric motors and they totally ignore the 22,000 plus scientists who signed a petition stating global warming is not caused by carbon emissions.
And then there is the whole issue of how the Jesuits have been involved with and control powerful electromagnetic field (EMF) devices since their discovery in the early 1900s by Nikola Tesla and others. The Jesuit EMF devices provided to the United States, Russia and other nations are used to control weather, cause earthquakes and conduct covert communications and surveillance (HAARP). Jesuit EMF devices were the true source (not Uranium and Plutonium) for the massive detonations, destructions and mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.
How ground based electromagnetic detonations (EMDs) occurred in two Japanese cities dominated by the Jesuits for over 200 years is a truly fascinating string of facts and evidence. The radiation poisonings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were caused by air-bursting conventional weapons loaded with Uranium (Hiroshima) and Plutonium (Nagasaki). Fat Man and Little Boy were dirty bombs that, when dropped by airplanes, exploded at high altitudes over the cities causing very little physical damage to structures with no mushroom cloud. The high altitude radioactive explosions were the signals for the non-radioactive, ground-based, Jesuit EMDs to be initiated with the ensuing massive destructions and mushroom clouds ...
In the mid 1980s, the Jesuit EMDs were used in an attempt to blast and build a lake canal so supertanker ships could simply float across (no locks) the country of Nicaragua. Whenever there is a massive explosion with a mushroom cloud somewhere on Earth, the cause is a Jesuit ground based EMD and not an aerial delivered or ground based dirty bomb with Uranium and Plutonium.

One month before the Challenger exploded in 1986, a small article appeared in the San Diego Union about a massive black cloud moving southwest (not natural) that was injected into the high atmosphere from Central America and drifted over the Galapagos Islands. There were no volcanoes erupting and no country or agency took official responsibility for the massive black cloud. Where the black cloud originated somewhere in Central America could have been seen by the crew during any NASA Space Shuttle mission.
Was the space shuttle Challenger sabotaged so the Jesuit EPDs could proceed with no interference by the teacher and reporter in space that were scheduled for launches in 1986? Did space shuttle missions resume after all Jesuit EPDs had either attempted to build or had successfully built a lake canal for supertankers across Nicaragua? Were the Jesuit educated and installed Ortega brothers in full compliance with the Jesuit EPD mission? The logical answer to all three questions is a resounding yes.
Further, Roman Catholic and Jesuit-backed absolute dictator Daniel Ortega was a personal friend of New York Archbishop John Cardinal O'Connor. Both the Cardinal's American Branch of the Knights of Malta and Fordham University's Jesuit-trained Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) William J. Casey openly backing the Contras. But, at the same time all these persons were involved in blowing up the Nicaraguan countryside with Jesuit EMDs to build a lake canal for supertanker ships.

Should there be massive explosions with the accompanying mushroom clouds over Tehran, Paris, Washington D.C., Los Angeles or any other city or military installation in the near future, the causes are ground based Jesuit EMDs with the intent of promoting the establishment of the Jesuit/Vatican New World Order. The Jesuits are the true master terrorists with the most powerful weapons of mass destruction on Earth yet they will also attempt to slowly poison you if you are a threat. The author and others are very aware but unaffected by of the real threat and oath by the hooded ones. Are Alex Jones and others prepared for the onslaught and fallout?

Going, going and gone Catholic

The European Union charter states Catholic is the official religion of the European Union (EU) with the Pope as the infallible leader. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair converted to the Catholic faith ... a must requirement before running for President of the EU. The EU is a blueprint for the North American Union (NAU) that is planned to become one functioning entity with the EU.
What is the common denominator of Roman Catholic Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Skull and Bones George W. Bush of the United States? Both have kissed the ring of the Vatican Pope. According to Vatican tradition, kissing the ring of the Pope is recognition that the person is a servant of the Pope. Bush stated on the Eternal Word Television Network (ETWN) before Ratzinger's first visit to the U.S. that when the Pope talked "God was speaking". ETWN is a real piece of work and bizarre propaganda.
Why would the supposed sovereign leaders of Venezuela and the United States kiss the ring of the Pope when both men knew such as a gesture signaled to the Vatican that they were servants of the Pope? They kissed the ring because Chavez, Bush and all leaders of every significant nation are servants of the Vatican Pope.
According to Vatican tradition, when the Pope kneels down on and/or kisses the ground of the country he is visiting, his kneel or kiss means he literally and figuratively owns and rules that country. Pope Ratzinger did not kiss the ground as he departed the plane in Washington D.C. in April 2008 as other Popes have in the past because a minor but significant portion of the United States population is aware of and hip to the sick and perverted Vatican rituals. However, Ratzinger executed his warped rites as he knelt before the United Nations (UN) building during his first visit to New York. Ratzinger's genuflection declared, according to Vatican beliefs and traditions, the Vatican owns and controls the UN therefore also dominates over all life forms on planet Earth.
The Jesuits and the Vatican know and practice the adage: to have true and absolute power, one must completely control both the problem (Chavez) and the solution (Bush). And the Jesuits and the Vatican absolutely and deftly control all the true problems and solutions of our reality on planet Earth. But then who really is the problem and who is the solution? In Chavez's Venezuela the price of gas is has remained 5 cents per gallon for years while in Bush's United States the price of gas is nearing $5.00 per gallon. The rising price of gas is another tool by the Jesuits in the war against America and establishing their New World Order.

The Jesuit poison oath and brew

The final fact presented in this article is related to the Jesuit quest for money and possessions by the use of poisons. Last year the author was in the Bay of De Los Angeles on the central east coast of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico. The purpose of the trip to the middle of nowhere was to snorkel with whale sharks.
A small museum details the plight of a local native Indian tribe that had the misfortune of living on top of a goldmine in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Mysteriously the small tribe began dying from unknown causes. After the last member of extinct tribe died, all of the gold was removed by none other than the Jesuits who arrived five years before the Indians began dying of unknown causes. This same scenario has been repeated countless times by the Jesuits all over the Earth for the past 500 plus years.
As the potato crops mysteriously failed only in the country of Ireland (Jesuit chemical poisoning) and no other European country, massive numbers of Irish Catholics flooded the United States. The fleeing Jesuit poisoned Irish immigrants benefitted the English Royalty in the fight against Ireland as the new Blarney Stone settlers became a significant voting block who blindly and ignorantly supports the anti-Protestant Reformation/return to the Dark Ages agenda. The shocked and fearful Irish immigrants filled Jesuit Universities that are now the foundations for Neo Cons, Newt Gingrich, Bill O'Reilly, Pat Buchannan, Bill Clinton, criminal child sex abuse, the one and only Patriot Act, NAFTA, the North American Union, mercury based inoculations, anti-depressants, dumbing down of the youth, torture cells, water boarding and so forth and so on ... By the way, the author of this article is part Irish and attended Catholic school until the sixth grade. As you can observe, the Jesuits favorite tool is poison but then a portion of the oath taken by a Jesuit mandates such actions:

I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage, relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth ... That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poison cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet regardless of the honor, rank, dignity or authority of the person or persons ... whatsoever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by an agent of the Pope, or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus.

All the facts above are just a small portion of the extensive historic and present day situation related to the Jesuits and the Vatican. There is so much, much more. The subjects related to the diabolical plans, intentions, history and crimes of the Jesuits are as vast and powerful as they are controversial, revolting and sickening.
Israel's influences on the United States have taken place over the past 60 years but remember Israel would not exist without the support and cooperation of the Jesuits and Vatican. In fact, the Vatican considers the nation of Israel to be its revived "Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem." The Jesuit/Vatican issue has a 500 year plus history of blatant facts and evidence but veiled in secrecy and ignorance.

JFK exposes the real threat

In his "monolithic conspiracy" speech of 1962, President John F. Kenney (1960) was not addressing communists, corporations, royalty, Bavarian Illuminati, Masons or the military industrial complex. JFK was addressing the Jesuits, the Vatican and their subsidiary organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group and the Knights of Malta. JFK was one of them but he turned on them so he was deposed with the principle architect of his removal being none other than Jesuit educated Cardinal Francis Spellman. Check out the facts and evidence.
The Jesuit propaganda is in full high gear as stooge film producer Ron Howard and dupe actor Tom Hanks created a movie based upon writer Dan Brown's book titled Angels and Demons. The ridiculous premise of this movie is a group known as the Illuminati subversively takes over the Vatican with a substance called anti-matter. In reality the Bavarian Illuminati was founded by Jesuit educated and coddled Adam Weishaupt in the early 1800s and has been under strict Papal Vatican control for over two centuries. In his last days of life, Weishaupt admitted he was true Catholic doing a double life bidding for and advancement of the Vatican Pope.
Another target of the Jesuits was to infiltrate and take over the highest levels of Masonry. The Jesuits creating the Bavarian Illuminati was calculated step to seizing control of the highest levels of the Masons. In the private and public letters of the founding fathers and business and political leaders of America before 1870, they did not address any threats to the United States by the Bavarian Illuminati or the Masons – only the Jesuits were specifically and correctly addressed.
The Jesuit/Vatican issue is the big "monolithic conspiracy" white elephant and its gooey poop in the room that nobody wants to see, smell, touch, think, hear or talk about. The references, evidence and bibliography for the Jesuit/Vatican issue would fill at least 50 of the highest density CDs.

Do you remain silent or take action?

Are these enough facts for you to begin the process of addressing and learning about the big white elephant and its gooey poop in the room? If you choose to ignore the facts and not address this issue (all the poop and nothing but the poop), why is anyone out of line by believing and saying you support the Jesuits/Vatican New World Order by your silence? Your answer to this question is sought and desired by countless persons.
Time is short to expose, understand, respond to and take action regarding the true and real roots and causes of the pending New World Order with the ultimate goal of establishing a police state as all citizens of all nations are forced to worship the Vatican Pope or be punished and/or be murdered as heretics.
Did a company in China build thousands of guillotines that are now being secretly stored in America and other locations around the world by the Jesuit established and Knight of Malta controlled Blackwater? Check-out the facts and evidence.
The Jesuit controlled Federal Reserve Bank is directly and solely responsible for national and local banks dispersing worthless home loans to unqualified buyers from 2000 to 2004. The ensuing collapse of the Federal Reserve Notes and the United States economy was a calculated and planned move to heard Americans into a union with Mexico and Canada. As the Dollar crumbles and prices skyrocket, the "savior" will be the dictatorial North American Union issuing a new currency called the Amero. Americans will probably be able to transfer their worthless and devalued Federal Reserve Notes into Ameros but only at a rate of 5 to 10 cents per dollar thus severely impoverishing the populace.
Americans can take back our freedoms and fiscal responsibility by demanding Congress repeal the Federal Reserve Act. As an emergency measure, the President of the United States elected in 2008 immediately has the Treasury Department issue silver certificates (dollar bills) for various denominations from one to 500. These peaceful steps will take a massive political education, awareness, bravery and actions by a very vocal but powerful minority of Americans. Repealing the Federal Reserve Act and instigating the Treasury Department to follow the mandates of the U.S. Constitution to print money are not the magic cures for all the ills of America but they are a logical start. Are there any Presidential candidates firmly committed to taking the emergency fiscal measure of having the Treasury Department immediately issue Silver Certificates to prevent the United States from total financial ruin and disaster? Check out the facts and evidence.
Persons who are not ordained as Jesuit and Catholic priests yet support the quest of putting all humans under the rule of Vatican pope either intentionally with malice or unintentionally with ignorance and silence are labeled as Coadjutors. As the freedoms guaranteed in the United States Constitution are being undermined and destroyed by forces and enemies outside and within America, the reader will either be American Patriot or a Jesuit Coadjutor after reading this article. Regretfully the situation has deteriorated so badly that we now live in a black (Jesuit) or White (American Patriot) reality therefore there is no grey area or middle ground. Americans can either acquiesce into slavery under the Vatican Pope or Live and Die so they and their. decedents become and remain truly free in all ways including financially, physically, intellectually, emotionally, politically, religiously and spiritually

Are you a Patriot or a Coadjutor?

Cojo) So Henry disagrees with "the emphasis" but apparantly not with the facts and evidence ... Isn't it interesting. Thanks a lot for posting it though. I find this article extremely dense and very well written. Brian cuts truly straight to the core.
