SONY PATENT TAKES FIRST STEP TOWARDS REAL-LIFE MATRIX



IMAGINE movies and computer games in which you get to smell, taste and perhaps even feel things. That's the tantalising prospect raised by a patent on a device for transmitting sensory data directly into the human brain - granted to none other than the entertainment giant Sony.
The technique suggested in the patent is entirely non-invasive. It describes a device that fires pulses of ultrasound at the head to modify firing patterns in targeted parts of the brain, creating "sensory experiences" ranging from moving images to tastes and sounds. This could give blind or deaf people the chance to see or hear, the patent claims.

'Info-mania' dents IQ more than marijuana



The relentless influx of emails, cellphone calls and instant messages received by modern workers can reduce their IQ by more than smoking marijuana, suggests UK research. Alarmingly, the average IQ was reduced by 10 points - double the amount seen in studies involving cannabis users. But not everyone was affected by to the same extent - men were twice as distracted as women.

Complex machine carved ancient rings



Each ring is encircled with a series of spiralling furrows, each one-fifth of a millimetre apart. "The grooves are highly precise and consistent," says Lu. This, he claims, indicates that they were made not by hand, but by some sort of advanced machine.

The world is three-dimensional and we capture that information by the retina. Narrator: robots today can see only in two dimensions. Kanade: in the case of TV camera, we are capturing the environment onto two-dimensional-Chip plane. Mathematically speaking you projected three-dimensional world onto two-dimensional plane so you lost one dimension, that is, the depth or distance.

Riddle of 'Baghdad's batteries'



It was in 1938, while working in Khujut Rabu, just outside Baghdad in modern day Iraq, that German archaeologist Wilhelm Konig unearthed a five-inch-long (13 cm) clay jar containing a copper cylinder that encased an iron rod. The vessel showed signs of corrosion, and early tests revealed that an acidic agent, such as vinegar or wine had been present. More than 60 years after their discovery, the batteries of Baghdad - as there are perhaps a dozen of them - are shrouded in myth. Most sources date the batteries to around 200 BC - in the Parthian era, circa 250 BC to AD 225. Skilled warriors, the Parthians were not noted for their scientific achievements.

Symael



I entered the darkened room, sat down by the door and got ready to be bored. Heard the laughter coming from the room next door and before I had time to resent being where I was I looked up and saw on the overhead projector a diagram of sound frequencies which I felt I'd been looking forward to seeing all my life. Next came a warm wavelike wind over my entire body. My attention was captured and synapses were popping as Dale proceeded to describe the vibratory resolution of paradox to which the machine was tuned. I scrambled to diagram the triplicate pattern of longitude, circle and spiral, recognizing it as evidence of what I'd experienced 6 months before in China as I was attending a 2nd level Chi gong workshop. It was at the point where I was experiencing the transfer of chi through walls. When I woke from my flashback, I was listening to a Chinese physist talking about yin and yang, his accent took me further toward recognizing that I was in a moment, right now, in this lecture, that I was meant to be and there were forces, which I could tangibly feel, which were bringing me into harmony. Resolving conflicts in my past, gifting me with peace in the moment and cultivating a pathway I could follow with ease, if I continued to recognized the prescence of awareness that I was experiencing.

While I sat and listened to the rest of the lecture I witnessed internal shifts and shakes that I knew was surpassing anything I'd experienced during the conference so far. By the end of the lecture I was propelled to go stand by the machine. In the harsh light of the overhead reflecting off the machine back into a circle of frowning, somewhat frustrated, inquisitive scientific faces, I blurted out "Why doesn't it make sound?" The scientist on the other side of the dynasphere, blinked but continued with his technical question. I noticed Dale was very relaxed and I checked myself for overload...even if it was out of excitement. There was a strong feeling that this kind of happiness and release just couldn't be possible from a machine...not for me...but the sensation was close to overwhelming. When I went over to the exhibition room to get a look at the machine again a sweet lady whispered to me...if you stand on this side the effect is even more powerful.

Transfer of Energy Through Time and Coupling of Parallel Universes



We, in our privelaged position as superobservers looking in from the outside, can see that every particle of mass is really an infinitesimally thin slice of a thread that passes through all the universes. As the universe moves along the threads in some kind of supertime, the particles or slices appear to move through space. That gives a visible rate of change that is observed as .. normal time" within the universe. From our position we can see that all the universes are equally real, only the one that you happen to be part of and moving with gives the illusion of appearing more real to you then the rest of them.

V: So you would be able to send signals or transport mass from one universe to the other.

H: Exactly.

Hidden Mysteries



IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT'S HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE, YOU CAN FIX IT. You can fix it without cheating anyone, without counseling with experts, without subscribing to any newsletter that keeps you posted on inside info, without writing Washington or getting involved in politics, without organizing, and without spending a penny unless you choose to.

Dream worlds are hard to leave. Even painful dream worlds are hard to leave. They're especially hard to leave when the dream makers tell us that leaving the dream world may be catastrophic. Many people actually prefer the ideasphere to reality, not caring that they are denying their whole selves pleasures of incredible intensity, pleasures and abilities truly "undreamed of." These people, and they are among our most respected citizens, are fully trained to believe in the life broadcast in the ideasphere, and they believe it can't get much better than it is. They'll never come around to reality until they must.

This little tome can only switch on the lights for people who are already tossing and turning under a terrifying yet fascinating nightmare. Suddenly, you bolt awake and there are your walls, the pictures, the lamps, the quilt, the soft breathing of your family. What had been twisting your body and mind was nothing but ideas, and they scamper away as soon as you open your eye to the glowing warmth of the real world.

Extra-terrestrial UFO technologies provide clue to bending time and space – teleport and time travel possible




An exploratory research projects found early indications to possible teleport and time travel mechanisms. The process involves bending time and space. Theoretical molecular physics provides a model of constructing a computer-simulated environment of “dark matters in isolation of any gravitational effects.” The computer simulation shows how dark energy or matter can help in bending time as well as space.

Holographic Universe


THE ENTROPY OF A BLACK HOLE is proportional to the area of its event horizon

University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.

To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms. A hologram is a three- dimensional photograph made with the aid of a laser. To make a hologram, the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of a laser beam. Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beams commingle) is captured on film. When the film is developed, it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines. But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam, a three-dimensional image of the original object appears. The three-dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain the entire image of the rose. Indeed, even if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs, every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole. The "whole in every part" nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organization and order.


Imagine an aquarium containing a fish. Imagine also that you are unable to see the aquarium directly and your knowledge about it and what it contains comes from two television cameras, one directed at the aquarium's front and the other directed at its side. As you stare at the two television monitors, you might assume that the fish on each of the screens are separate entities. After all, because the cameras are set at different angles, each of the images will be slightly different. But as you continue to watch the two fish, you will eventually become aware that there is a certain relationship between them. When one turns, the other also makes a slightly different but corresponding turn; when one faces the front, the other always faces toward the side. If you remain unaware of the full scope of the situation, you might even conclude that the fish must be instantaneously communicating with one another, but this is clearly not the case.


Our innate perception that the world is three-dimensional could be an extraordinary illusion.

Remarkably, recent developments in theoretical physics answer some of these questions, and the answers might be important clues to the ultimate theory of reality. By studying the mysterious properties of black holes, physicists have deduced absolute limits on how much information a region of space or a quantity of matter and energy can hold. Related results suggest that our universe, which we perceive to have three spatial dimensions, might instead be "written" on a two-dimensional surface, like a hologram. Our everyday perceptions of the world as three-dimensional would then be either a profound illusion or merely one of two alternative ways of viewing reality. A grain of sand may not encompass our world, but a flat screen might.



In the movie Star Wars, Luke Skywalker's adventure begins when a beam of light shoots out of the robot Artoo Detoo and projects a miniature three-dimensional image of Princess Leia. Luke watches spellbound as the ghostly sculpture of light begs for someone named Obi-wan Kenobi to come to her assistance. The image is a hologram, a three-dimensional picture made with the aid of a laser, and the technological magic required to make such images is remarkable. But what is even more astounding is that some scientists are beginning to believe the universe itself is a kind of giant hologram, a splendidly detailed illusion no more or less real than the image of Princess Leia that starts Luke on his quest.

Put another way, there is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it -- from snowflakes to maple trees to falling stars and spinning electrons -- are also only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time.

Question: no-Where is beyond space and time?

VALIS by Philip K. Dick




A coterie of religious seekers forms to explore the revelatory visions of one Horselover Fat; a semi-autobiographical dialogue of PKD. The groups hermeneutical research leads to a rock musician's estate where they confront the Messiah: a two-year old named Sophia. She confirms their suspicions that an ancient, mechanical intelligence orbiting the earth has been guiding their discoveries.
In February and March 1974, Dick experienced a series of visions and auditions including an information-rich "pink light" beam that transmitted directly into his consciousness. A year after the events, in March 1975, Dick summarized the 2-3-74 experiences that would pervade his writing for the final eight years of his life:

"I speak of The Restorer of What Was Lost The Mender of What Was Broken."

"March 16, 1974: It appeared - in vivid fire, with shining colors and balanced patterns - and released me from every thrall, inner and outer.

"March 18, 1974: It, from inside me, looked out and saw the world did not compute, that I - and it - had been lied to. It denied the reality, and power, and authenticity of the world, saying, 'This cannot exist; it cannot exist.'
"March 20, 1974: It seized me entirely, lifting me from the limitations of the space-time matrix; it mastered me as, at the same time, I knew that the world around me was cardboard, a fake. Through its power of perception I saw what really existed, and through its power of no-thought decision, I acted to free myself. It took on in battle, as a champion of all human spirits in thrall, every evil, every Iron Imprisoning thing."

The Apotheosis of Washington


Left: George Washington portrayed laying cornerstone to our nation's capitol in Masonic garb, suggesting he too (like Hiram Abiff) was a master builder. Right: Statue of George Washington modeled after the Greek god Zeus originally placed in the Rotunda of the Capitol in 1841 but was later moved to the American History Museum.

Apotheosis - Exaltation to divine rank or stature; deification.
[Late Latin apothesis, from Greek, from apotheoun, to deify : apo-, change; see apo- + theos, god; see dhs- in Indo-European Roots.]
The use of the word in the title of the piece suggests an insinuation derived from the etymology of the word apotheosis... suggesting 'change INTO god'.


Washington DC can fairly be described as the world's foremost "Masonic City." Its centre was laid out according to a plan drawn up by the French Freemason Pierre L'Enfant. Washington had requested that he should be buried in the grounds of his estate at Mount Vernon and it was difficult to overrule his wishes. As compensation, a heroic statue of Washington as Zeus was placed in the Capitol pointing up to George Washington's ascension into the waiting heavens depicted in the fresco of Constantino Brumidi which was above it. Congress made seven attempts to honor George Washington; this was Try Number 4. In 1832, Greenough was commissioned to design a statue of General Washington standing, but chose to model his statue on a statue of the Greek God Zeus. There may have been some method in his madness.



Constantino Brumidi, Fresco in Rotunda of Capitol, 1865. Suspended 180 feet above the Rotunda floor, the fresco covers an area of 4,664 square feet. The figures, up to 15 feet tall, were painted to be intelligible from close up as well as from 180 feet below.

Brumidi depicted George Washington rising to the heavens in glory, flanked by female figures representing Liberty and Victory/Fame. A rainbow arches at his feet, and thirteen maidens symbolizing the original states flank the three central figures. The word "apotheosis" in the title means literally the raising of a person to the rank of a god.



Artist unknown, Reverse painting on glass. George Washington is seen ascending into heaven upon his death.

Indeed, there hasn't been much press given to the Masons in this country, perhaps purposely, yet I came to find out that most of our founding fathers were Masons. The founders of our country! I also found out George Washington was a Mason, which gives more meaning to the vision I had in chapter 5. And, though it may have been prompted by the close proximity to his birthday, and the piece written about him being addressed by an angel from heaven, as "Son of the Republic" and foretold the future of this country, which I was reflecting on, it was also about the time I began working on this symbol! (While it's interesting that the only National Masonic Monument, the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, in Alexandria, Virginia, is dedicated to him.) Hiram Abiff, considered the greatest builder of the ancient world and central figure in Masonic lore—their greatest martyr. Master builder, master Mason, and adept in the art of geometry, he was commissioned to build King Solomon's temple 1 Kings 7:13-51 and, was grand master of the Dionysian Architects! Another exclusive tie! And, when George Washington is portrayed laying the cornerstone to our nation's capitol in Masonic garb, it suggests he too was a master builder.



Reconstruction of the chryselephantine statue of Zeus at the temple of Olympia.

The statue was made by Pheidias around 432 BC and had height about 12 meters (seven times larger than normal).The Statue of Zeus at Olympia in the Peloponnesus was a magnificent example of collossal chryselephantine sculpture. It was made of marble and decorated with ivory and beaten gold. The flesh parts were of ivory and marble layered on a wood or stone core, the drapery and other ornaments of gold adorned with precious stones. The statue of Zeus was made by Phidias, the most famous sculptor of antiquity, who also made the cryselphantine statue of Athena which crowned the Acropolis. The Statue of Zeus was completed in 457 B.C. and placed in the great temple in the sacred grove in Olympia. The Emperor Theodorus I removed it to Constantinople where it was destroyed in a fire in 475 A.D. The statue of Zeus was dedicated to the planet Jupiter.




The most important Greek city in North Africa, Cyrene was founded in the 7th century BC by a party of immigrants who had fled the drought-inflicted island of Thera in the Aegean Sea. Built on a series of levels, the spectacular ruins of Cyrene include the Sanctuary and Temple of Apollo, the Acropolis, the Agora, the Forum, the Stoa of Hermes and Heracles, the House of Jason Magnus, the Nine Muses and the Temple of Zeus.




In the war that followed, the Titans fought on the side of Cronus, but Zeus and the other gods were successful, and the Titans were consigned to the abyss of Tartarus. Zeus henceforth ruled over the sky, and his brothers Poseidon and Hades were given power over the sea and the underworld, respectively. The earth was to be ruled in common by all three. Beginning with the writings of the Greek poet Homer, Zeus is pictured in two very different ways. He is represented as the god of justice and mercy, the protector of the weak, and the punisher of the wicked.
Questions: Were the images of Washington and their connections with the Masons and Zeus suggest a subtle portrayal and subsequent attempt to cover up secret knowledge? If so by whom? And of what knowledge?

LUTHER BLISSETT,

THE UNKNOWN ICBM

(Invisible College Board Member)

Here is a resume of the data collected about Luther Blissett's life by The Library of The Invisible College. The first file comes from Russia, where Blissett was first arrested in Baku. The police confiscated several computer disks from his appartment and charged him with insulting the honor and dignity of the President. Luther Blissett was convicted and sentenced to five years in prison. He escaped the following year and fled to China. There, active in the underground literary movement, Blissett has been repeatedly harassed by the Chinese government until he fled. Settling for a brief period in Indonesia on his way to Peru, Luther Blissett was hired (then dismissed) as professor of development studies at Satya Wacana University -- most likely for leading a faculty protest after university trustees ignored his recommendation for a new rector and chose someone who was considered by Blissett too close to the government. Charged with "collaborating with terrorism" in Peru, he was sentenced to twenty years in prison despite a complete absence of incriminating evidence. The trial was conducted in Peru's infamous "faceless" court system where prosecutors and judges operate behind one-way glass walls. But for obscure reasons, the Supreme Court annulled the conviction. After hearing the verdict, Luther Blissett simply said: "Time is The Invisible College". Peruvian journalists are still using Blissett's ordeal to publicize cases about innocent prisoners. The archives of The Invisible College loose track of Blissett until his arrestation seven years later as part of a massive roundup of alleged members of a pro-North Korea "spy ring". He was held for questioning for several days without sleep. He was beaten, stripped naked, forced to stand in awkward positions for long periods, and made to crawl on the floor with his hands bound behind him and his head on the floor. It is related by a certain Mr. Choi (one of the inmates who was with Blissett at the time & helped him escape to Iran) that during this torture session that lasted more than a week Luther Blissett "never stopped laughing". It is in Iran that Luther Blissett declared on radio that "The Invisible College is The Invisible College". Consequently, the Islamic Republic declared him an enemy, leaving him no choice but to go into hiding and flee the country. In his peaceful Vietnam phase, that lasted several years, Luther Blissett wrote extensive personal memoirs which include comments on the Invisible College's policy towards efforts to suppress the Unified Buddhist Church. This document (that vanished, like most of Blissett's writing) nonetheless prompted him to leave the country with the teenage daughter of a businessman from Zaire. In that country, Blissett was arrested five times in four years for printing information which was critical of the government. During detention, he was tortured with electric shocks and beaten with machine guns. The Canadian Embassy in Zaire helped him move to Kazakhstan, where he is said to have written of the epic story tellers and folk people of Kyrgyz. He was imprisoned for six months as a member of the Social Turan Party, though the party did not exist. He escaped to Jordan and in Amman, he continued to write and give public readings about "The unexistence of The Invisible College"... until his alleged assasination by an Interpol agent, when he would have learned that Blissett was sleeping with his twelve year-old daughter. The body of Luther Blissett has never been found.
