1 week from today I'll return to the Paradigm Symposium for the 3rd time, in what will surely be another epic event. Hope to see you there!
(I'm also planning on taking a bit of a time-off in October, so you kids better behave)

Quote of the Day:

"Those of a materialist persuasion like to say, “Oh you people who believe in reincarnation, you believe in life after death, you’re just doing that because you find it comforting. It comforts you to imagine that life might go on.” To that, I would reply, “What utter nonsense.” It’s not comforting at all. On the contrary, it’s more comforting to imagine that there are no consequences. The materialist view is actually the comforting one! The view of reincarnation and the notion you must account for the life you’ve lived, and that there will be consequences for it, is a deeply disturbing notion, as a matter of fact. And it requires you to examine the life you lived very, very closely and very, very carefully. So I think there’s a lot of nonsense talked around this subject. And I try in my work to shed some alternative light on it."

Thanks, Percival.

Quote of the Day:

To all climate change deniers, before you start posting about how there have been periodic major droughts in California for thousands of years, please name the branch of science that provided you that information. I'll answer that for you - climate science. Now please provide an explanation for why you accept the conclusions of climate science regarding the distant past but reject its conclusions about today's climate. Please include examples of why conclusions about the Earth's past climates are more rigorous than conclusions about today's climate.

As the father of a beautiful girl named Isis, the recent news headlines have been getting me down. Help me out by taking a look at this petition to the media.

Quote of the Day:

To search expectantly for a radio signal from an extraterrestrial source is probably as culture-bound a presumption as to search the galaxy for a good Italian restaurant.

I wonder if Justice Sotomayor's view of the current situation would change if she could read her own NSA file?

A big thanks to Greg, Grailseeker, and RedPillJunkie for their help.

Quote of the Day:

To your first earth, ascend, to the place from which you were transplanted, to the fine abode of the uthras. Bestir yourself, put on your garment of radiance and put on your resplendent wreath. Sit on your throne of radiance, which the Life set up for you in the Place of Light. Rise up, inhabit the skinas, among the uthras, your brothers.

A bit of Gnostic cosmology that seems to imply that the Uthras are scouts or representatives from the Mandaeans' true, heavenly home.
