”We live in a nightmare of falsehoods, and there are few who are sufficiently awake and aware to see things as they are.”

Quote of the Day:

“To recover a sense of reality is to recover the truth about ourselves and the world in which we live, and thereby to gain the power of keeping this world from flying asunder.”

Nikolai Berdyaev

"In the beginning was the Code, and the Code was with the Programmer…"

Quote of the Day:

"Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I've done that. Yes, that works."

Thanks to @MattStaggs.

Quote of the Day:

The top 1% of the world's population own 80% of the world's wealth. It's incredible that people put up with it. But...they're poor, they're demoralised, and they're frightened. And therefore they think perhaps the safest thing is to take orders and hope for the best.

Kong chaos!

Thanks @LorenColeman and @CultofWeird.

Quote of the Day:

You have to remember we brought back a picture of the Earth as it is 240,000 miles away. And the fact is, it gives you a different perspective of the Earth when you see it as three-dimensional between the sun and the moon...

You have to really kind of think about our own existence here in the universe. You realise that people often say, ‘I hope to go to heaven when I die,'. In reality, if you think about it, you go to heaven when you’re born.

It's only paranoia if their not out to get you...

Quote of the Day:

Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and ‘progress,’ everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man’s refusal to bow to Authority.

Worrying again about being on time somewhere is no fun --but neither is starvation…

Quote of the Day:

"Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge."

Ride the wave...

Quote of the Day:

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Quote of the Day:

We're all like detectives in life. There's something at the end of the trail that we're all looking for.
