Although fairly clumsily written, this site gathers together some of the more convincing arguments against the mainstream recording industry.

This is why my band is eschewing major label pursuit for an independent approach.

Alexander: "Sure thing, lady"

Are you listening?

I have returned.

I took some time off from writing in order to let my creative juices stew. Unsurprisingly, I'm dissatisfied with the results. I'm sure that personal reasons factor in here somewhere, but I'm not going to bore you with my life, as I'm sure you have much better things to do, such as write an epic novel-form pseudo-philosophical analysis of life, death, and perception as we know it, or maybe to record your own scarred little emotions (that fluctuate like the size of Oprah Winfrey's ass) in your livejournal. Maybe you're going to trip out on some hallucinogenics and write some psychedelia-inspired piece about existence that nobody will understand, or, maybe, nobody will care to understand. Or maybe you'll just sit there, wallowing in your own angst and misery, because it really IS everybody else's fault that you're misunderstood.

When you've got nothing but time on your hands, keeping yourself busy is harder than you think. I could be working out. I could be getting a tan. I could be masturbating. Instead of all of that, I've decided to devote my time to sitting inside, being rather pasty, and working on a cathartic act of self-expression. Sure, self-expression is becoming a run-of-the-mill thing on the Internet, but it's all we've got left. Sadly enough, the Internet could very well be the last bastion of honest, visceral, emotional connections between people. Sure, it's not as good as real life, but we're all too inhibited to talk to each other like this on a streetcorner, or in a restaurant. We're afraid of what others might think. We're afraid of others. But, I'm going to just not care about other people. So, you guys can do as you wish. Whether it's trying desperately to fit in with another ethnic group, losing yourself in online MMORPGs, or pretending to be a ripe teenage girl so that you can prey on young boys in a chatroom, I'll be busy not caring.

In the meantime, I'll be cranking out another one of my patented violent, unimpressive, sub-par attempts at a short story, or maybe some clichéd piece of cultural commentary that's supposed to actually change people's perceptions of events as we know it. I could be out modifying cars and citing my incredibly self-absorbed ability to fuck everything that walks (only if it would sit still for just one second), but no. I'm going to write something, and prove my worth. I'm going to make someone think. I can make a difference. I can make one person think. And, that person is me. After all, I'm the only one who matters. Right?

.....Right? Oh, that figures. I'm wrong.

THE INEVITABILITY OF CHANGE (Conclusion – continued from Heaven & Hell)

Posted 18 July 2003, 9.07 am by The Green Mamba

Because Alexander requested it, so blame him - haha

I wasn’t going to write any sort of conclusion to my series of posts on The Holographic-Shamanistic-Quantum-Animistic Model of The Universe, but there appears to be some confusion about the whole basis for these articles. I think the main reason for these misinterpretations is because in Quantum Physics and spiritualism conventional logic falls away. In order for it to make sense you have to look beyond the commonly accepted scientific laws governing the possibility or impossibility of the data presented.
Our biggest mistake was using conventional words like “mind”, “soul” and “consciousness” for things that we simply didn’t have any other words for yet. In our own minds we were able to distinguish the various “alternative” meanings of these terms, but we never realised that other people wouldn’t pick up on that.

In light of this, let me clarify the following about our discussions:
Firstly, they weren’t written as any sort of final truth. They were written as an analysis of newly acquired scientific data in comparison with documented metaphysical experiences.
Secondly, the theories that we discussed are not new (even though I would have liked to claim that they are). After our discussion we furthered our search into what is called Quantum Animism (sometimes called Quantum Tantra) eventually discovered that many of our theories are already documented by Quantum founding father Werner Heisenberg.
Thirdly. Simply because we wrote a certain phrase doesn’t mean that we actually believe it. It simply means that we included into our discussion because we thought at the time that it warranted further investigation.

The end result of our discussion was an affirmation of The Beast, one of our core beliefs in the monster called Modern Culture and a possible basis for its existence within the group/cultural mind - Substantiated by all the source documents, independently.
That everything within the Universe is connected - Substantiated by all the source documents through the Zero-point Field Theory.
That what we eventually referred to as The Mind is physical matter interacting with energy, whereas Consciousness is most likely Quantum Energy (also known as Dark Energy) – Indirectly substantiated by a combination of The Holographic Universe, Edgar Mitchell and The Path.
That there is a higher probability for an omnipresent (but not necessarily omnipotent) consciousness (although not a sentient being) to exist throughout the universe than against it – Indirectly substantiated by all the source documents combined
That we are spiritual beings (energy) first and thereafter physical - our Minds may govern our bodies, but Consciousness (Quantum/Dark Energy) governs the mind – Indirectly substantiated all the source documents combined.
That our physical sensory capabilities dominate and limit us to our perception of reality –Substantiated by The Holographic Universe, Edgar Mitchell and The Path.
That metaphysical experiences appears to be directly linked to Quantum Physics and what religion calls “heaven” could just be an expansion of human awareness beyond the limitations of our physical reality – Indirectly substantiated by all the source documents combined, but particularly Edgar Mitchell and The Path
That “prophets” are most likely people who were/are able to expand their awareness beyond physical reality and that our elevation of their stature within society is because of our inability to explain it through our “logical” model of reality – Indirectly substantiated by all the source documents combined.

Following that, here are the most prominent changes to my own belief structure:

From being Agnostic to believing that the universe arises from a blueprint, which is “god” (a Consciousness without personality - it is not “wrathful” nor “loving” except as how we interpret the way in which it behaves), and we are a part of this blueprint. Not a separate part, but an indivisible part of a whole.
That prophets like Mohamed, Buddha and particularly Jesus were actual people and that Jesus truly was the “son of god” (within the context of the above definition of god) i.e. The Jesus I believe in is not the sacrificial saviour of mankind, but the potential example of what we could become.
From believing that consciousness (sometimes referred to as soul for simplicity’s sake) resides within our physical minds to believing that it exists separately and independently from our perception of reality.
That all ancient myths, legends and religious writings are sources to a truth that we, as humans, have forgottenlost. Not any one of them contains the ultimate truth, but each of them is part of a great jigsaw puzzle that makes up the whole truth.
That religious institutes like the church does not teach us to search for the truth (as the various prophets intended), but instead only tries to force its opinions onto us. It is a narrow-minded, self righteous institute that only cares about preserving it own social (and sometimes economical) interests under the pretence of salvation.
In addition to that I believe that the truth is not something that is “out there” or bigger than anything that we can comprehend. It is within each of us, but not just that … it is within everything around us, from a single grain of sand to the Universe as a whole, independently or as a whole. We see it every day and yet we are blind to it, because we are governed by our own pre-conditioned, personal beliefs. Only when we dare to look beyond what we have been conditioned to see by modern culture through religion, traditional science and conventional logic … can we break free from the prison that we built around ourselves.

From the time we wrote these articles to date, we continue to find new, previously inexplicable, documented mystical and scientific phenomena that fit perfectly into The Holographic-Shamanistic-Quantum-Animistic Model of The Universe. No other model based on actual scientific data has ever managed to accomplish that.

In the same breath, need I remind you that our definition of existence is only as relevant as the information we have on hand at the time of defining it.
New information leads to new truths … reaffirming the inevitability of change.

Distance Healing

Posted 18 July 2003, 4.39 am by Dragonfly

In 1988 a breakthrough occurred in scientific research on interpersonal psychology. Dr. Randolph Byrd, MD, conducted a study involving 393 patients of a coronary care unit, that were assigned randomly either an intercessory prayer group or control group. There was no contact between prayer groups and patients, to negate the possibility of the placebo effect. After ten months, Byrd reported that the patients being prayed for suffered less severe symptoms and required less medication. Although numerous critics pointed out flaws in the data, this study had achieved a marked breakthrough – it made the research of distance healing legitimate work.
Since then, over 100 studies have been done in this area, but none have been considered more than mediocre at best. But this is changing. Respected scientists at major institutions like Harvard, Duke or the Mayo Clinic are conducting serious research and publishing findings in mainstream journals.
For example, in 1994 Fred Sicher led a study on the effects of distant healing on advanced AIDS patients. To ensure legitimacy of the research, protocol was discussed and reviewed by numerous scientists, by AIDS specialists, and by self-identified healers before the first patient was enrolled. Two studies were eventually completed, a pilot of twenty patients, followed by a confirmatory study of another forty patients. The pilot, considered exploratory, produced the surprising finding of 40 percent mortality in the control group, but no deaths in the treatment group. This striking result occurred despite the fact that patients and researchers did not know who was in the treatment group, and that the two groups were equal in severity of the disease. Both of these studies are reported in the December 1998 issue of the Western Journal of Medicine.

Now there is new research underway on distant healing by Elizabeth Targ, MD, funded by the National Institute of Health. Two studies are being conducted with 150 patients each, one with AIDS and the other with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare aggressive brain tumor that has a mortality rate of 97% in the course of five years. Randomly selected individuals shall be the focus of a variety of prayer groups including Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Native American and energy healing practitioners, all with at least 17 years of experience and faith in their work. Each distant healer is given the first name, a photograph, and a description of symptoms of the patient. Then they sit one hour every day for six days, have a week off, and then are given a second subject. This being a double-blind experiment, there is no contact between healers and patients or doctors, and neither patients nor doctors know who is being treated and who is not.

There is a wide range of opinion in this area of research, still viewed by many as controversial. D.J.Benoir, MD, is of the opinion that “if prayer were a drug, it would be approved for use by now.” Only 5 years ago doctors conducting prayer research were afraid of losing credibility, but as this is changing we might finally be moving forward to some answers.

Dave Brockie Experience - Songs For The Wrong

Posted 16 July 2003, 4.17 am by The_Roach

Unintelligible and bizarre lyrics. Composition style that seemingly consists of having a hamster shit on a musical staff. Vocals that make you want to rupture your eardrums with whatever happens to be handy. These are the hallmarks of Dave Brockie Experience, side project of GWAR members Dave Brockie, Mike Derks and Brad Roberts.

Songs For The Wrong, the ambitious follow-up to their 2001 debut Diarrhea of a Madman, is ... well, it's certainly something. You simply can't say that a group of individuals like this have "matured", but the album is far more cohesive than earlier work. This is probably more due to writing an album instead of slapping a group of previously unreleased tracks with a few newly written songs than any sort of new synergy between musicians who have played together for years already.

Juvenile tracks about getting head from unattractive women and having sex with the mentally challenged are the stock in trade. Still, the album manages to balance these out with songs about the massacre at Shatilla, a soldier thinking of his mother as he dies and I Wanna Be A Squirrel, a wacky ditty that's probably the closest thing to an honest love song Brockie is capable of producing. Toss in an Irish drinking song and a reflection on the lack of cheese in Chinese cuisine, and you've got a well-played if fucking stupid collection.

Is it good music? Yes and no. Derks' guitar work is spectacular throughout and, as Brockie's ego has apparently allowed for someone else to have a bit of the limelight, we do get the opportunity to enjoy a good bit of talented instrumental work on a few tracks (He's Going Crazy! being the best example). Much of the album is annoying to no end however, containing humor that was better left on the playground. I expect nothing less than to have it in my player for months to come.

And, whatever you do, don't look at the sixth page of the liner notes under any circumstances.

HEAVEN & HELL (Continued from PROPHETABILY)

Posted 14 July 2003, 6.51 am by The Green Mamba

“Our entire life is a dual between finding our way out of The Hologram or trying to recreate True Reality within The Hologram.”
Let me put it this way. Humans are either trying to get to "heaven" or trying to create "heaven" here on earth. My theory is that this is all an attempt to escape The Hologram (and experience True Reality (heaven)) or to recreate True Reality (heaven) within The Hologram.

But the attempt of recreating Heaven on Earth (read as "True Reality" and "hologram") is either by people who don't believe in the practical possibility of Heaven (as a scientist) or people who believe it is God's will to order Earth according to the laws of Heaven. However, is this possible? Can one level become the other level? Only awareness can bridge the gap, not mind (which is The Hologram).

Maybe before The Hologram was created/born/evolved all realms were one ... maybe its all a matter of shattering the illusion ... and what will remain will be True Reality - or heaven as some call it. Maybe that is where the whole Life after Death idea originated ... by killing The Mind all that remains is Consciousness ... and Consciousness resides outside The Hologram. However ... if you surrender to The Beast ... then it drains your energy ... and nothing remains after death (or too little to escape The Hologram) Suddenly reincarnation doesn't seem like such a foreign idea anymore - actually it makes more sense than ever. In order to advance in the holographic chain you need to reach a higher level of awareness, until you reach a high enough level to escape The Hologram. On the other hand if you surrender to The Beast, your awareness becomes diluted ... and you are trapped inside The Hologram as a lower being. Maybe we are not human, animal, tree or rock. Maybe we are all the same ... just less or more aware. Since humans are the highest forms of life on the planet ... it makes sense that we would be the targets of something like "the flyers" (although I still have a slight problem accepting that an outside force is responsible - I still think that the flyers are something that originated internally). We are one step away (consciously) from True Reality ... and that is why "they" harvest our energy ... to sustain The Hologram as a food source.

I think the relationship between The Beast and humans is either similar to that of us and cows or chickens (we are conveniently placed in mental coops or pastures, by a power that has us in its palm, just because we won’t accept its is there), or then similar to healing with prayer - or mental effort - we have subconsciously decided that there is something holding ourselves back.

Perhaps it’s a predatorial universe after all… I don’t believe the Darwinistic “survival of the fittest” theory – people aren’t built to compete, to challenge their environment: ulcers, anxiety and stress disorders are fair proof of that in the human, and his ecological catastrophe is proof of that in nature – but when the competition is energetic, between creatures of different worlds*, and the way to stay “fittest” is calmness, balance, and collectedness – not physical fitness, that jars the mind and emotions, but WHOLE fitness – then I’ll agree with it. It corresponds to the facts then, as I see it.
*If the flyers feed on us, are others capable of feeding on flyers? Does the predatorial universe – tigers and bears, hunger and disease, tornadoes and floods and flame – force us to evolve until we can gain mastery of our world, so that we can defend against other worlds…. Again – this is high speculative fiction (as always fiction clears the way for fact).

No…going back to my last comment on the predatorial universe… we are intrinsically one with this holographic universe, and thus something can only harm us when we accept it, agree to it at some level. The universe is predatorial because of the inner conflict we have…no, this is only assuming that the mind directly correlates to the universe, or the universe reflects the individual – a teaching in many beliefs, like Native American shamanism, Zen Buddhism and esoteric Judaism (the kabbalah) and the western mystery tradition – but not necessarily true.

“The Beast - Yes ... it is all that and to take those aspects away from it is to think less of it ... but what lies behind the greed, fear and lies? Satan? Or is it just another aspect of True Reality from which The Holographic Universe is being projected? How big a part does The Hologram you and I play in the image that is being projected? Is The Beast a product of The Hologram or ingrained in the underlying reality that projects the picture?

I see The Beast as a force that is generated subconsciously by "The Mind". It exists because we (or the flyers) subconsciously created it ... but it only exists as long as we subconsciously fuel its existence. If we can irradiate all its aspects from our minds then it will cease to be (easier said than done). It is much bigger than the individual, but contained within the global mind. I don't see The Beast as part of True Reality (Consciousness at its core), but rather as something that exists only within The Hologram itself. Almost like flaws in the image that is being projected ... psychological interference between the holographic film itself and the image we see."

So, re-phrasing, we exist in cages in the palm of a power, which we either let in accidentally or created ourselves - this power is subconscious and impersonal, but keeps us trapped efficiently and what almost seems like intelligently (just as water could be considered "intelligent" because it always takes the path of least resistance). (This intelligent manner of the impersonal force is the origin of conspiracy theories, which always assume a "they" out there, plotting to get them (subconsciously affirming the Beast).) It is contained within the collective subconscious and thus in every mind. Yes, flaws in the image that is being projected... Flaws originating from The Mind.

On the other hand if I take theory that in The Holographic Universe, even the smallest part of The Hologram contains a smaller image of the entire hologram ... then The Beast in its entirety resides within each of us.

That’s it, the last instalment in this series of posts (do I hear a sigh of relief?). Whether you accept or reject some of the scientific information and theories presented here (and in the source documents) is entirely up to you and your susceptibility to something that does not fit the standard model of the world we know. However, one thing can not be denied … that there are things in this world (and beyond it) that our current model of reality can not explain … whereas everything that was previously ascribed to religion or “beyond our understanding” fit perfectly into the Holographic Shamanistic Quantum Animistic Model of The Universe.

To Any and All Who Read This

The tightrope walker takes a bow towards the crowd, applies chalk to his hands and bare feet, then begins his journey across the rope. He begins to sway and for a brief moment all appears to be lost for the man. But just as suddenly he regains his balance and again walks down the rope. Finally, twelve feet from the end of the rope, the tightrope walker extraordinaire plummets to his death. A homeless man who watched the whole scene unfold began to weep when he saw the man plunge one last time. Another spectator walked up to the man and asked if he knew the recently deceased. His reply was:
"I know the man not, but I know his plight well. I too toppled and my life as it is was the injury I sustained."
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
You'll have to pardon the Zarathrustra-esque anecdote I just spewed your way, but I came across the realization that life is oftentimes like that. My step-father always used to tell me that I was "walking a thin line between disaster and safety"... and I used to wonder how only a thin line could seperate two such extremes. And then I realized that that is precisely what life is like. There is good on your right, bad on your left, and a two-foot walkway between them that we attempt to walk day in and day out.

But even that doesn't seem like it sums up what life is truly like. There is no epic struggle between good and evil... there are two evils and a two-foot walkway between that signifies the lesser evil, the compromise we make. Though one evil may seem good-natured at first, most things that are pure and sanctive are often those that lead us further astray.

Take for instance, a relationship. Everyday that you are in a relationship, you walk a fine line between thinking with your head and thinking with your heart/reproductive organs. If you ever think think with one and not the other, you run the risk of pacifying the beast (aka - the significant other) at best, or ruining the relationship at worst. Too many pre- and post-pubescent humans these days throw around the L-Bomb (for those that have no idea what this is, it's the infamous "I Love You" that is typical of my generation) like it's going out of style, and while your heart and your genitals scream "IT'S RIGHT, JUST SAY IT!!" more often than not it's a case of succumbing to emotions and will ultimately cause the downfall of any and all related situations.

On the other hand, if you think with your head and wait as long as is humanly possible to say it, the related parties will typically get frustrated. This generally leads to either saying the phrase though you don't mean it, or the end of the relationship in question. There are exceptions to every rule, so don't jump down my throat with your "What If..." and "One Time, I..."s aimed at my skull. I speak of generalization.

So it would appear in this given hypothetical situation that the only option which coincides with the "path dividing the two" would be to wait as long as is prudent, and if the feeling still remains THEN and ONLY THEN vocalize it. However, this is Robert Frost's "path less taken" and if you take it, Mr. Frost so eloquently had the foresight to predict that it will make "all the difference".
