KNOWLEDGE IS THE IGNORANCE OR NEGATION OF EVIL


"It is through Ignorance of the Laws of Nature that men have believed in the sun being arrested in its course, in asses speaking, in the jaw bones of an ass transforming themselves into fountains, and in a whole world of absurdities and chimeras.
It is Ignorance that makes Trimalchio burst at table, and St. Anthony go mad in the desert, man ever craving to plunge into vices or scale the heights to virtues disproportioned to his being.
It is through Ignorance that Tiberius, at Capri, inflicted on himself sensual gratifications more horrible than tortures, and felt himself die a thousand times daily in the disgust of his power, and the agony of his pleasures.
The Ignorant have poisoned Socrates, crucified Jesus Christ, tortured the martyrs, burnt the heretics, massacred the priests, have overthrown and re-erected alternately the most monstrous idols, have preached, some tyranny, others license, have denied, some all authority, others liberty, and all have ignored Reason, Truth and justice. It is through Ignorance that a man is proud since he then fancies to make himself honoured by rendering himself ridiculous and contemptible. It is through Ignorance that a man is avaricious since he thus makes himself the slave of what is made to serve us."

"No man knowingly deceives himself, and he who flies from Truth does not know what Truth is."

R. Buckminster Fuller's Synergetics

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

100.010 Awareness of the Child: The simplest descriptions are those expressed by only one word. The one word alone that describes the experience "life" is "awareness." Awareness requires an otherness of which the observer can be aware. The communication of awareness is both subjective and objective, from passive to active, from otherness to self, from self to otherness.
Awareness = self + otherness
Awareness = observer + observed

100.011 Awareness is the otherness saying to the observer, "See Me." Awareness is the observer saying to self, "I see the otherness." Otherness induces awareness of self. Awareness is always otherness inductive. The total complex of otherness is the environment.

100.012 Universe to each must be
All that is, including me.
Environment in turn must be
All that is, excepting me.

Code World - Rafiki

Home of Code World,and exploring the genetic code.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Image hosted by Photobucket.comMost of the great thinkers from antiquity have incisively penetrated polyhedra and their symmetric properties. Since many early number systems were inferior by today’s standards, the ancients concentrated on shapes, proportions and spatial relationships. On the other hand, today we have robust numerical paradigms, but they are primarily wedded to cubic symmetry, so we have unwittingly become a cube-centric culture of thinkers. The ubiquity of the term ‘3D’ belies the point. Consequently, our mental skills regarding proportions and spatial relationships are atrophied, and the ancients were undeniably superior to us in this regard. They appreciated better the basic power of geometry in forming an intellectual view of the universe, and they regarded it a sublime pursuit.

This website is a collection of fanciful ramblings about symmetry and the genetic code. We hope you enjoy it. There is a lot of material here, and perhaps it strays a bit more than it should. To cut to the chase, here are some stunning conclusions about the genetic code.

Tensegrity


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

What is tensegrity?
"The word 'tensegrity' is an invention: a contraction of 'tensional integrity.' Tensegrity describes a structural-relationship principle in which structural shape is guarenteed by the finitely closed, comprehensively continuous, tensional behaviors of the system and not by the discontinuous and exclusively local compressional member behaviors. Tensegrity provides the ability to yield increasingly without ultimately breaking or coming asunder"
- Richard Buckminster Fuller (exerpt from Synergetics, p. 372.)


As excerpted from Carlos Castaneda's Readers of Infinity, Number 1, Volume 1, 1996.

"The magical passes of those shamans of Mexican antiquity became their most prized possession. They surrounded them with rituals and mystery and taught them only to their initiates in the midst of tremendous secrecy. This was the manner in which don Juan Matus taught them to his disciples. His disciples, being the last link of his lineage, came to the unanimous conclusion that any further secrecy about the magical passes was counter to the interest that they had in making don Juan's world available to their fellow men. They decided, therefore, to rescue the magical passes from their obscure state. They created in this fashion, Tensegrity, which is a term proper to architecture that means "the property of skeleton structures that employ continuous tension members and discontinuous compression members in such a way that each member operates with the maximum efficiency and economy." This is a most appropriate name because it is a mixture of two terms: tension and integrity; terms which connote the two driving forces of the magical passes."

COHRA - Council On Human-Reptilian Allegiance

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Sumerian text: "Man is born of sadness, for he is of the Blood of the Ancient Ones (first contact/creation), but has the Spirit of the Elder gods (Annunaki-Reptoids) breathed into him. And his heart goes to the Ancient Ones, but his mind is turned towards the Elder gods, and this is the war which shall be always fought, unto the last generation of man; for the world is unnatural."

[Appearently this is Gov. Schwarzenneger's stance as well on "Gender-neutral marriage

The time-travel movie 'Primer' delivers a mind-bending, metaphysical experience


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

"Two engineers, one played by the film's writer-director, Shane Carruth, invent something. We're not entirely sure what it is - the first reel is all hushed, half-comprehensible technobabble - but then neither are they. The machine they've made, cobbling together parts from a catalytic converter, an old fridge, and who knows what else, turns out to have a function they couldn't have thought possible. It appears to be able to transport things back in time."

Built for time travel, dome now enjoying renaissance


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

"The makeshift altar inside the Integratron is laden with talismans of religious and spiritual traditions as varied as its visitors. The two-story white dome near Landers was originally built as a time travel and human rejuvenation machine by a man who claimed to be carrying out plans revealed to him by visiting Venusian extraterrestrials. Now, it's enjoying a renaissance as a Mojave Desert mecca for visitors who consider it a health and spirituality center, as well as scientists who say the building and its location are warranting scientific investigation.
Its future remains open."

Doughnuts May Make Time Travel Possible


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Professor Amos Ori of Techion Israel Institute of Technology has proposed an idea for time travel that does not require the presence of exotic matter, instead using ordinary matter and the vacuum of space. [...] Prof Ori’s mathematical calculations published in Physical Review Letters earlier this month, further elaborate on the curved space theory. He proposed space could be twisted to produce a local donut-shaped gravity field. According to Prof Ori this would produce a time machine where every period of time after its creation would exist somewhere in the vacuum inside the donut.

Space Settlement

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

"Space settlement is a unique concept for colonization beyond the Earth. While most thinking regarding the expansion of the human race outward into space has focused on the colonization of the surfaces of other planets, the space settlement concept suggests that planetary surfaces may not be the best location for extraterrestrial colonies. Artificial, closed-ecology habitats in free orbit would seem to have many advantages over any planetary home (Earth included). "
