The Forces Shaping Our World

If you have not been getting depressed lately then maybe you just have not been paying attention. There is so much to be depressed about. In which case you might feel the seductive downward pull of melancholy. Perhaps there is a mysterious feeling of sadness lurking out in the wilderness stalking you, waiting . . .ready to claim you at a moments notice. Lurking . . .waiting. Till finally, like the evil SLIME in a B-grade movie it drags you down into subterranean depths, into the underworld. Perhaps even into Neptune’s world, into the subaquatic realm of deep dark and horrible feelings. And maybe . . . maybe, that’s not such a bad thing after all because let’s face it: there is actually plenty to be depressed about. And a warning: this is not one of those pieces of propaganda you see plastered all over the toilets of the Western World or bobbing up on the telly giving you a hotline number to call if you feel depressed. Managing depression has it’s place, but this is not one of those places. And you can be assured of this: There is HOPE. Real hope.

It will not here be proposed that the depressing reality is merely a chemical imbalance in the brain that some neurological doctor of reductionism can address by introducing a new poison into your brain. There now! It will all be better soon. Really? Honestly? Such bullshit.  It seems that so often the best that the medical fraternity aim for is that you will settle enough so that the problem goes away. As if we are three year old children that need to be put to bed, to be made unconscious. Thanks, but no thanks.

Ah yes feelings. Feelings! Those messy and fluid blobs of pulsating and very human energy that can not be forever avoided. Even if you want to. You may at times, find yourself standing on the metaphorical cliffs of your own isolation and loneliness and look into that sea of  seething and unregulated emotion wondering if your are brave enough to dip your toe in the water much less to jump in. You may at this point of contemplation feel an urge to run away. Or even take yourself off the game-board. Yes it certainly does happen. Or you may in defeat want to scurry back into the video game. Back to the television. Back to the bottle. Back to the fun-parlour. Back to the sex doll, or sex person. But as the Alcoholics Anonymous peeps will tell you, it will probably be necessary to hit rock bottom before you are ready to change.   But here’s the thing: it isn’t actually necessary to hit rock bottom. You can can simply decide to change. A radical proposition admittedly but there it is. So sue me. Yes, it can be done through choice. You can simply look at the “what-is” of your life and fess up. I did it! Just own the whole damn thing. And after making a thorough inventory of all the shit stuff . . .you then get to decide what you want to do about it.

Simply existing as an anaesthetized member of an unconscious civilization will not bring you any joy, or any real pleasure and certainly no fulfilment. Those things are all off the list. Surfing the mall for distractions will leave you feeling empty. Honestly . . .As you cruised past all those retail outlets offering all that cheap and even overpriced stuff, did you spare a thought for the people who exist in grinding poverty in slave-like conditions to bring you your pink satin panties? Your iPhone cover? Your new set of dumb-bells? Your cross-fit lycra gold lame tank top by Designer fitness pro Desmondo (made in Bangladesh)? Cheap t-Shirts. Overpriced stonewash jeans. A baby’s arm holding an apple. Now go be happy and shut the fuck up.

It’s no wonder you’re depressed. You should be. There is no simple way out. The truth is that us Westerners can be just as trapped as those in sweatshops. We’re all slaves it seems. And the competitive genes of the world’s poor are striving to get their kids into better education and higher paid jobs so that one day they can come to your country and take the best jobs from your kids. This is not a racist rant. And I wish it were’t true. But the way things are, it’s more than just a little bit true. We humans may have invented a bunch of technology that makes it ever easier to rape the Earth and produce ever more stuff, but it seems that sadly, we are a long way from being truly civilized.

So start crying. Really. If there IS something that can change the world it’s people getting in touch with their feelings. For it is not possible to engage with the authenticity we need to affect REAL change, from the place of narcissistic avoidance, perpetual numbness and proactive insanity. You just get more of the same. And you see , , ,this IS the Apocalypse. We are living through it. What does it mean? Apocalypse? Though I have noticed that most references to this truer definition have been whitewashed lately. Funny thing . . .  It means a lifting of the veil of secrecy and lies in a time of evil and corruption. Honestly. Seen the news lately? By that definition The Apocalypse is in full swing. And you need to make it your own. Start to get in touch with your own dark feelings, of sadness, of regrets or remorse. Spill the beans. About yourself. To YOURSELF. And when you’re done look out into the world and see with brutal clarity the BEAST of Revelations in fully exposed ugly mode. LOOK at the corruption of the world, and start weeping. You can change, but it’s not going to happen from the place of  hiding, of avoidance, of chosen ignorance and of endless addictions. Get clean. Get free. It’s time. Change.

You see, it’s not actually as bad as it seems and at the same time it’s far worse. That is the paradox of course. Far worse? Well . . .you may have been listening to all those crazy conspiracy theories on-line and in your face saying all this terrible stuff. Who do you believe? What is actually going on? If you need any inspiration you can do a search on Building 7. There’s a case in point. How . . .the fuck . . .did it fall down? This is the question that many highly qualified people are asking. No answers from the US administration. No secret societies have put up their hand to admit complicity. What a surprise. And while you’re at it remember the worlds of Adolph Hitler. In the game of mass psychology, control and dominance, it is useful to tell a BIG lie. A lie so monstrous that people would refuse to believe it. Building 7.

So how should you make your way in a world of greed, corruption, anxiety, depression, evil and lies? It’s a good question. First confront your own corruption and lack of moral fibre. Feel your feelings about how you FEEL about such a breach of trust with yourself. Own it. And take your time. Give yourself more than a minute on this. THEN .. .FORGIVE YOURSELF. And then decide that you want to change. It’s the authentic decision that will lead you out of the labrynth.

There is an old Chinese saying. You should not fear making slow progress. Fear only making no progress. Stagnation really is death. You need to get committed to your own LOVE actions. State of being. Open heart meditation. LOVE of God however you conceive him/her to be. Get committed to yourself. Doing the REAL thing may seem odd at first. It seems we have all become so comfortable with the LIE that to live in the truth can feel a bit odd once you decide to get to it. A bit weird. Hey! Just do it. You could make up a list of authentic actions, projects, stances, behaviours, consumer choices, habits. thought patterns, friends, groups . . .songs to sing . . . and just schedule in things on the list. There would be no room for anything else. Turn off the bloody telly! In fact there is a new word doing the rounds: Voluntourism. Look that one up. Getting un-fucked is a job of work to be sure. But as an evil communist dictator once said. The journey of a Thousand Miles begins with a single step. Hang on! That wasn’t an evil Communist dictator who said that. It was Lao Tsu – a wise man. Strange how these things go.

If you need any inspiration to more deeply feel and understand the global perspective there are few more enlightening or sober reflections available than from the lips of the President of Uruguay – Jose Mujica as he addresses the United Nations 2013

Collective Evolution -a Firsthand Account

The Quantum Lime Flavoured rEvolution has been witnessing first-hand evidence that humanity may be evolving in ways hitherto unrecognized, unimagined and unrecorded. That is until now. It’s really happening folks. Why just yesterday it was reported that a member of the USA Senate learned to walk upright. Not only that but an Executive at Monsanto used sign language to ask for a banana.  This is giant step evolution at it’s best. To celebrate the best, the bravest and most noteworthy though you really have to look at the Collective Evolution online media portal and the work of one Joe Martino and friends. An article titled The Big Myth “This is How it Has to Be caught my eye. Some finely tuned ideas here on some of my favourite Quantum riffs. Yes you Do create your own reality – as much as some would like to argue that they don’t. To those people we can only say that denial is not a river in Egypt. But far be it from me to harp on the negative. yes I did straighten up and I did fly right. And I learned to accentuate the positive. Now it’s all up to YOU.





Killer Robots – Time to say NO!

31 05 2013
Of all the sickening things we could do to ourselves, this one is surely ri9ght up there with the worst of them. Say NO three times a day. Say it to your friends. Say it on trains and in lifts. JUST SAY NO

Campaign to Stop Killer Robots

Killer robots. It’s obviously time to turn back on this road of soulless human misery and destruction. What to do? On this issue people just have to say NO. No to killer robots.  Check this story out and keep visualizing peace, prosperity, abundance, enlightenment and authentic freedom for all – it may not happen overnight, but it will happen.

From the Sydney Morning Herald Online

Should robots be allowed to take a human life, without direct supervision or command? 

Science fiction met reality at the United Nations in Geneva overnight where this question was debated at a meeting of the Human Rights Council. 

UN special rapporteur Christof Heyns told the council that countries are developing armed robots that can kill without the need for human choice or intervention and they need to call a halt before it’s too late. More . . .

IT’S TIME TO ADD YOUR VOICE TO THE NO PROPOSITION ON THIS ONE FOLKS. LOBBY, MAKE A NOISE. MARCH IF YOU CAN. WRITE LETTERS AND KEEP VISUALIZING PEACE IN OUR TIME





Coal Seam Gas – The Monster in The Room

14 11 2012

Coal Seam Gas is the new Godzilla

Shocking stories about the abuse of power and the corruption of the powerful via the undue influence of business bucks is nothing new. Examples of this confront us almost daily in the media. There is a global army of world weary citizens who are saturated with cynicism. And we have seen that there are indeed limits to just how much people are willing to put up with. There is a pattern to how this plays out. Take for example the Arab Spring uprisings. The whole thing was triggered by one frustrated person, so appalled by the unfairness and corruption of one particular official that he set himself on fire. A match alight in a tinder box.

The key to understanding this phenomenon is that the conditions were so ripe and ready for change that it could have been any number of different individuals in relation to any number of different corrupt public officials that ignited the spark. We call it the tipping point. It is this emergent chain-reaction that has lead to the rewriting of the political landscape in the Middle East. Of course it is not required for a person to self immolate in order for a tipping point of public dissatisfaction to be reached. In our media infused world we see that these movements are now constant ripples and currents moving through societies and reshaping them. To put it bluntly people are pissed off and hungry for the next public example of the failure of adequate governance. People have had enough and people are hungry to blame their elected representatives who have failed to govern effectively. This brings us to Coal Seam Gas – the monster in the room. And the news just in.

Researchers at Southern Cross University have discovered that large amounts of methane gas, carbon dioxide and other gasses are leaking from Australia’s biggest gas field at Tara QLD (see video below for previous action by farmers at Tara). Ben Cubby writing in the Sydney Morning Herald chose his words more carefully. He said:Vast amounts of methane appear to be leaking undetected. OK . . .appear to be leaking. This is interesting because a white paper released last week predicts a wholesale expansion of Australia’s Coal Seam Gas industry and calls for environmental objections to be removed to facilitate large scale gas extraction. Oh really?!!!

One may conjecture that there are so many snouts in the trough of coal seam gas dollars that there is no room left for any more pigs. The thing to understand is that a trough is a low-point. And pigs will happily eat shit. But Coal Seam Gas dollars are a favourite excrement of the porcine brethren at the moment. Enjoy piggies. You will make lovely rashers of bacon and legs of ham for those connoisseurs of the swine flesh – the dissatisfied and appalled public incensed and incendiary by apocalyptic media storms of the truth revealed. Methane gas is considered to be the most damaging of green-house gasses. Far more damaging than carbon dioxide as a contributor to global warming. And so now if we can’t rely on the left-wingers of politics to look out for the common future of humanity and the broad interests of the people then we must expect that nature will indeed take it’s course. Ham and bacon rolls coming right up folks.

The pollies must understand that the business swine is the great tempter of the political pig. Consider these pearls of wisdom from Rick Wilkinson – chief operating officer of APPEA the industry body.

“Incomplete research from Southern Cross University academics this week lacks the basics of scientific rigour. What is presented as research is in reality a funding submission.”

Thank you Rick. Pop yourself into the pan like a good piglet. I’ll have mine with eggs and toast.

Barbarians of The Low Country

The Barbarian Who Became a King

This is Planet Earth Bop Bop-Bop

Reading open mouthed – slack jawed you might say – of the latest efforts of the barbarian aristocracy of this country (Australia) to put nuclear power on the agenda. Australian politicians are not satisfied with our status as a nation of boorish ex-convicts from the arse-hole of mother England. No they are determined to make us not just an international laughing stock but an inter-galactic one as well. The space tribes, we are told, regard the human species’ seeming pathological inability to act responsibly with nuclear energy as one of our  . . .shall we say, blind spots? What then are we to make of a recent deeply suspect dollop of crapological media spin from a group of semi-conscious cave-person fascists who go by the name of the New Democracy Foundation?

As reported in the Sydney Morning Herald. . . Here is the opening salvo word for word. Will wonders never cease to amaze the world weary?

A ”CITIZENS’ JURY” has recommended the government start a discussion about nuclear power stations in NSW as an issue that ”should not be dismissed”.

The jury of about 25 people from Sydney was one of two invited by the Parliament’s public accounts committee to participate in an inquiry into alternative energy. The other was from the New England area.

The juries were chosen by the New Democracy Foundation whose members include the chairman of Infrastructure NSW, Nick Greiner, and the former premier of Western Australia Geoff Gallop. Its founder is the executive director of Transfield Holdings, Luca Belgiorno-Nettis.

(Italics added by Dr Quantum’s Lime Flavoured rEvolution)

Dear Mother of God. New Democracy Foundation?!!! A Citizens’ Jury?!!! Nick Greiner?!!! Geoff Gallop?!!! Luca Belgiorno-Nettis?!!!

Just in case any of our barbarian F%#*wits are reading this you can look at any number of accounts online of currently up & running Hydrogen powered everything. Here’s one  now on Hydrogen powered cars. According to one knowledgeable source in the USA there are probably around 2,000 separate Hydrogen power energy production projects on the go for the last year or so, that would provide a level of efficiency of the Hydrogen energy production that is around one order of magnitude greater than anything currently on the market. Well then. Better get those fucking nuclear power plants built real quick. You big civil engineering project companies may wish to go and find a valley full of happy natives to flood for the purposes of generating power. Hmmm? Or not perhaps.  Anything but nuclear. There are a few descriptions appropriate for those promoting any kind of nuclear apart from cold-fusion. The words GREEDY, IRRESPONSIBLE & MORONS do come readily to mind in this context. Sorry chaps but the nuclear power plant idea is an EPIC FAIL.

There are no words that can adequately sum up the deep horror that any sane person should be feeling upon reading this propaganda, sorry . . .news. Jesus is weeping. Apparently the fascist class has a very low opinion of the great unwashed if this is the sort of dog’s vomit they dream up. What next? A Disney Land version of Aushwitz? Hey . . .I can hear those bastards talking and some of them think the Disney Land – Aushwitz thing is a pretty good idea. More bean sprouts anyone?

If We Had An Empathic Connection With Nature

Art Symbol Nature Man

The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World

“I can think of no one else who could have conceived, let alone written a book of such penetrating brilliance”

These are the words that David Lorimer uses to conclude his review of Iain McGilchrist’s landmark work The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. If Lorimer’s praise is justified then here we have a rare and precious jewel in the treasury of wisdom for our times. There is intellectual muscle in the review as there must also be in the book, which is as yet unread by your correspondent. Not to worry, it has certainly gone to the top of the list of must reads. Clearly the book should become compulsory reading for all school graduates who are about to embark either on a career or off to study in one of the universities, which are clearly nothing of the sort. The point being if our universities really were offering and providing UNIVERSAL education as the term would suggest, then this book would not have been required in it’s current form. What they mostly provide is Marxism, materialism and a kind of hyper-masculinised intellectual bullying. 

McGilchrist himself provides arguments that are pleasingly nuanced, which you can prove for yourself by watching a short address he gives on the ideas in his book in the video embedded below. A sample of Lorimer’s review follows immediately below.

The divided brain of the title indicates that human beings have two distinctive takes on the world, mediated by the left and right hemispheres respectively. There are evolutionary reasons, explained in the book, for why this should be the case, right the way through the animal kingdom.

Iain explains that the right hemisphere gives the overall context, apprehends things as a whole and is able to take in the new. The proper cooperation of the hemispheres involves the grounding and integrating role of the right hemisphere, with detail added by the left hemisphere and returned to the right for a further integration, or, as the Germans put it, Aufhebung. This means that philosophy should begin and end in the right hemisphere rather than being a purely left hemisphere activity as it tends to be, especially in Oxford. A particularly striking chapter argues for the primacy of the right hemisphere, an idea which may initially come as a surprise to the reader, who is used to hearing the left brain referred to as the dominant hemisphere. The primacy of the right hemisphere implies the primacy of the whole over the part, of the implicit over the explicit and of experience over abstraction.

Here then is some support for the notion of what is being referred to within the walls of this blog as The Quantum Goddess  from the halls of higher learning and knowledge, which in this case is All Souls College Oxford. What is most interesting is that in the book: A particularly striking chapter argues for the primacy of the right hemisphere . . . Well alright then! That means on the one hand . . . from a theological perspective, we really, really . . . really need to start exploring the feminine divine, the goddess, the Divine Sophia. God as a Girl and not just as a boy – PRIMARILY. On the other hand of course there is the little matter of our hyper masculinised world-view which has been running us. What goes hand-in-hand with the super macho thing is OF COURSE misogyny – hatred of the feminine.

OF COURSE plenty of people in the real world are starting to try on the flowing garments of the Goddess for size. Just not it would seem, those in power. Those who are gaily legislating on the ongoing murder, death and destruction of large swathes of the environment for example. No cross-dressing in the halls of power amongst our male business, (fundamentalist) religious, and political leaders. The female pollies and business types can keep masquerading as women for the time being. Hmph!

Admittedly this is not as simplistic as  . . .Love is a warm puppy. Warm puppies have their place, and so does the salvaging of the way we currently conceive life, the universe and everything. As proclaimed on the banner of this blog We need a refreshing change. If anyone is looking for some powerful and resounding intellectualism to support the current imperative for The Great Turning . . .you will have it with  The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World – in buckets full. Go on then and READ YOUR HEAD OFF. Or . . .you can even watch an introduction by Mr McGilchrist hisself on the computer telly below. Possibly the most significant bit of audio-visual so far . . .ever. Eh?!!! What’s that you say? This is like watching the Goddess deliver a lecture on the telly. You better watch it.





The Fascist Regime USA! What Do You Say?

American Fascism . . .More Protest Required?

Genetic Engineering Bullies Slice Up Democracy for Profit

On June 21, the US farm bill (S. 3240) passed the Senate and moved to the House. Unfortunately, the Sanders amendment (2310), which would secure individual states’ right to label genetically engineered foods was defeated 73-26, clearly illustrating the power and leverage of the GE lobby.  The amendment would have put an end to the kind of bullying Monsanto has engaged in for many years, such as threatening to sue states that want to enact their own GE labeling laws.

This legislative boon is exactly what you’d expect from a politician bought and paid for by the industry. The provision, dubbed “The Monsanto Protection Act” by Food Democracy Now, effectively strips judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer rights and the environment. It’s a perfect example of how insidious the collusion between the biotech industry and Washington really is, and how easily and nonchalantly they undermine our most basic rights.

please take a moment to sign your name to a letter created by Food Democracy NOW asking your Representative to support DeFazio’s amendment to strike Kingston’s biotech-friendly “farmer assurance provision.” The campaign letter can be found here
