Facets and the Funnel of Kaleidoscopic Perception Tags: Consciousness Empowerment Esoterica

Perception - by Tanya Shatseva

by Zen Gardner

It’s intriguing to me to find viewpoints. When we observe anything we need to be mindful from whence we are doing so. It has everything to do with how we perceive so called reality.

I had an interesting experience one time, I can’t remember if it was in a semi dream state or some such altered frame of reference, but I could see an object or concept I was viewing as a sort of crystal. If you looked at it head on it had certain perceived traits and characteristics. But when I moved slightly to the side to see this form through another facet it was of a completely different nature than I had originally perceived.

It was a brief insight but it was extremely powerful for me. I actually could see more clearly what the nature of the form was from a side angle than I could from straight on. The “displayed” identity of what it was I was looking at was nothing like, or should I say very dissimilar to, the projection I was being given looking at it from the conformed frontal viewing space.

This is a very powerful metaphor for our ingrained ideas of perception. Looking “head on” is not all it’s cracked up to be, no matter how seemingly perceptive our understanding of that head on picture of the fractal holographic reality we’re attempting to process. Slide around the side and look again.

Our Twisting Perception

Let’s “face” it, so to speak, this world is all about perception. If you’ve ever looked through a kaleidoscope you’ll know what I’m talking about. The bits of glass or crystal move inside this cleverly mirrored viewing tube while light permeates from behind the image. With each slight twist the picture completely changes.

 

Such is our changing perception, and we should be mindful of that.

Plato, whom I don’t fully trust, said that behind our perceived reality are “forms”, archetypal images and concepts that we’re in a way identifying and even conjuring into our reality. I don’t know about that, but the idea is very interesting. It’s one way to perceive or explain our reality. The essential question is what exactly are we perceiving, and how can we get a true grasp on the nature of our actual existence?

Such is the life of human spiritual pursuit perhaps, but it’s not one without ultimate gratification. We’re not here to be deceived, tricked or led on into vain searches for meaning in life, however rampant this phenomenon is. Knowing we are whole in ourselves and have every answer we need at our disposal in some way is essential to the quest.

Perceive Outside the Tube of Thought

Twisting the kaleidoscope is fair enough as a metaphor, but why are we confined to even that? Perception has everything to do with the perceiver. We are the real, conscious crystal in a sense. And in a marvelous crystalline universe. The possibilities are boundless yet the spirit of perception is what lives on. Therein lies the key – conscious awareness in a sea of infinite possibility.

This is why the position of the observer is so essential to our awakening. The place of conscious awareness is our essential being. Not what we view, or even understand, as those will change, much like the kaleidoscope of perception. It’s who is viewing this magical world we exist in that is connected to the essence of everything that is the essential all powerful element being hidden behind this holographic veil of illusion that is the key.

Such is the power of detachment. We’re no longer subject to our surroundings, but playful participants. We observe, we pop in and out on the field of interchange, but are not subject to any laws other than those of loving Source, which we are aligned with by the nature of our detachment and awareness of our essential consciousness. It’s really not all that complicated. When we operate from this standpoint our actions have their most profound effects where needed, and our peace is kept securely in the bosom of a loving, creative Universe.

Facets – Something to Grok

Facet is a very interesting term. We use it in so many ways, but essentially it does reflect attributes or faces of perception. What “face”, derived from facet, is someone or something portraying? Is it the true face of what lies behind it? Are we often being given a deliberate false perception of something for whatever reason, or taking things at “face” value without realizing it?

This is one of life’s toughest lessons, realizing we’ve often been deliberately deceived and abused in whatever manner after a conjured lie caught our fascination. It’s a mainstay of popular, manipulated culture. It seems to usually appear one way only to lure us into participation or consumption in some way. Plants and animals do this as well to attract prey. Why not so within the human and even spiritual realms where deceptive parasitic energies are fully at play?

One look at the put on faces of our evil would-be rulers knowing well what lies beneath illustrates this point perfectly. Spoken lies are another projected facet through which they want the world to perceive them.

That wake up happens to all of us sooner or later. Be it crass advertising, religious and cultic predators, or socio-economic-political deviants on the road to nowhere looking for adherents, this is a minefield we each grow up navigating.

Have Fun With This Reality

This kind of detached yet fully aware and participating existence is a blast. Just look at the joy in the faces of realized people you’re read about or know. Happiness, clearly not derived from temporal pleasures although those can be fun too, is a state of mind and heart. It comes from overcoming the falsities imposed upon us by this lower dimensional paradigm we’re living in and in finding truly free and productive lives, helping to liberate those unfortunately entranced by the lies of this matrix-type world we find ourselves embroiled in.

Herein we find fulfillment in this current paradigm. Overcoming and then dancing with glee on the illusion couldn’t be a better setting for a conscious soul! If you’re not laughing at the current insanity you’re not there yet is all I can say. Overwhelmed or overcoming keeps coming to mind lately. It’s a choice.

That’s how to handle this current world. But it’s not without response-ability that needs to be actuated. We can’t possibly think we’re awake yet not helping to rescue those who are drowning.

Some thoughts to ponder.

Stay detached, yet engaged. That’s about as zen as you can get.

Enjoy the ride! And help others do the same while exposing the game for what it is.

Love always, Zen

And Now for the Robot Apocalypse…

by James Corbett

Well, you can’t blame them for trying, can you?

Earlier today the grandiloquently named “Future of Life Institute” (FLI) announced an open letter on the subject of ‘autonomous weapons.’ In case you’re not keeping up with artificial intelligence research, that means weapons that seek and engage targets all by themselves. While this sounds fanciful to the uninformed, it is in fact a dystopian nightmare that, thanks to startling innovations in robotics and artificial intelligence by various DARPA-connected research projects, is fast becoming a reality. Heck, people are already customizing their own multirotor drones to fire handguns; just slap some AI on that and call it Skynet.

Indeed, as anyone who has seen Robocop, Terminator, Bladerunner or a billion other sci-fi fantasies will know, gun-wielding, self-directed robots are not to be hailed as just another rung on the ladder of technical progress. But for those who are still confused on this matter, the FLI open letter helpfully elaborates: “Autonomous weapons are ideal for tasks such as assassinations, destabilizing nations, subduing populations and selectively killing a particular ethnic group.” In other words, instead of “autonomous weapons” we might get the point across more clearly if we just call them for what they are: soulless killing machines. (But then we might risk confusing them with the psychopaths at the RAND Corporation or the psychopaths on the Joint Chiefs of Staff or the psychopaths in the CIA or the psychopaths in the White House…)

In order to confront this pending apocalypse, the fearless men and women at the FLI have bravely stepped up to the plate and…written a polite letter to ask governments to think twice before developing these really effective, well-nigh unstoppable super weapons (pretty please). Well, as I say, you can’t blame them for trying, can you?

Well, yes. Actually you can. Not only is the letter a futile attempt to stop the psychopaths in charge from developing a better killing implement, it is a deliberate whitewashing of the problem.

According to FLI, the idea isn’t scary in and of itself, it isn’t scary because of the documented history of the warmongering politicians in the US and the other NATO countries, it isn’t scary because governments murdering their own citizens was the leading cause of unnatural death in the 20th century. No, it’s scary because “It will only be a matter of time until [autonomous weapons] appear on the black market and in the hands of terrorists, dictators wishing to better control their populace, warlords wishing to perpetrate ethnic cleansing, etc.” If you thought the hysteria over Iran’s nuclear non-weapons program was off the charts, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Just wait till the neo-neocons get to claim that Assad or Putin or the enemy of the week is developing autonomous weapons!

singularityIn fact, the FLI doesn’t want to stop the deployment of AI on the battlefield at all. Quite the contrary. “There are many ways in which AI can make battlefields safer for humans” the letter says before adding that “AI has great potential to benefit humanity in many ways, and that the goal of the field should be to do so.” In fact, they’ve helpfully drafted a list of research priorities for study into the field of AI on the assumption that AI will be woven into the fabric of our society in the near future, from driverless cars and robots in the workforce to, yes, autonomous weapons.

So who is FLI and who signed this open letter. Oh, just Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, Nick Bostrom and a host of Silicon Valley royalty and academic bigwigs. Naturally the letter is being plastered all over the media this week in what seems suspiciously like an advertising campaign for the machine takeover, with Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk having already broached the subject in the past year, as well as the Channel Four drama Humans and a whole host of other cultural programming coming along to subtly indoctrinate us that this robot-dominated future is an inevitability. This includes extensive coverage of this topic in the MSM, including copious reports in outlets like The Guardian telling us how AI is going to merge with the “Internet of Things.” But don’t worry; it’s mostly harmless.

…or so they want us to believe. Of course what they don’t want to talk about in great detail is the nightmare vision of the technocractic agenda that these technologies (or their forerunners) are enabling and the transhumanist nightmare that this is ultimately leading us toward. That conversation is reserved for proponents of the Singularity like Ray Kurzweil and any attempts to point out the obvious problems with this idea are poo-pooed as “conspiracy theory.”

singularity2And so we have suspect organizations like the “Future of Life Institute” trying to steer the conversation on AI into how we can safely integrate these potentially killer robots into our future society even as the Hollywood programmers go overboard in steeping us in the idea. Meanwhile, those of us in the reality-based community get to watch this grand uncontrolled experiment with the future of our world unfold like the genetic engineering experiment and the geoengineering experiment.

What can be done about this AI / transhumanist / technocratic agenda? Is it possible to be derailed? Contained? Stopped altogether? How?

Gaddafi's son, 8 other former government officials sentenced to death by 'Libyan militia'

RT Published time: 28 Jul, 2015 ShortURL

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the surviving son of Libya’s slain leader Muammar Gaddafi, has been sentenced to death in the country along with several other members of the former government.

He was sentenced in absentia on Tuesday along with other senior members of the former Libyan government, including Abdullah Senussi, Gaddafi’s former intelligence chief.

 

“It was clearly a show trial in respect to all of the defendants,” Jones said. “It was basically a trial by militia.” 

The trial was conducted in Tripoli by an unrecognized Islamist government that came to power after forcing a rival government out of the Libyan capital. The trial lasted just two days and can hardly be called fair, lawyer John Jones, who was involved in defending Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, told RT a day before the ruling.

Earlier Tuesday, after the proceedings had just started, Jones said an atmosphere of intimidation hung over the entire proceedings.

“Lawyers were intimidated, the judges are intimidated, lawyers had had to leave the case,” he said.

Providing evidence of the alleged crime was not a priority either, he added.

“The prosecution is not calling any witnesses to be cross-examined. They are relying on interrogations, which are often tainted by torture. And the defense was only allowed two witnesses and no protection was given to them,” he said.

The Tripoli authorities moved forward with the trial of Gaddafi-era officials in a bid to build more legitimacy, both domestically and with foreign powers, said Catherine Shakdam from the Beirut Centre for Middle East Studies.

“The message is that the want to play government, that they are here to say and that they are trying to rule Libya. If not by legitimacy, then they would to it de facto anyway,” she told RT. “They are trying to establish a sense of normality by trying to conduct legal affairs and state affairs.”

The Libyan government-in-exile currently residing in the eastern city of Tobruk condemned the trial of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi and the other statesmen.

Saif was captured in November 2011 shortly after his father’s summary execution by the rebel forces, as he was trying to leave Libya. He was kept in custody by a local militia in the city of Zintan for months, as the militants refused requests from an internationally recognized government in Tripoli to hand him over for trial.

Both Gaddafi and Senussi were indicted by the International Criminal Court and Libya was ordered to hand them over for trial in The Hague. The Libyan government didn’t comply and even detained a team of ICC lawyers for a month, accusing them of delivering prohibited documents to Gaddafi.

Before the fall of Muammar Gaddafi’s government amid a NATO bombing campaign that devastated the country’s army and allowed rebel forces to seize control, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was considered the second most powerful person in Libya.

A London-educated, fluent English-speaking PhD graduate, he supervised the investment of the nation’s multibillion dollar reserves generated by oil trade into foreign assets.
