Very good article about productivity.
Eighteen individuals throughout history whose entire lives unfold simultaneously. Comprised entirely of double page spreads split into eighteen panels with each panel featuring one character’s life, cartoonist Ray Fawkes has artfully crafted eighteen linear stories into one non-linear masterpiece. Nominated for the 2012 Eisner Award in the “Graphic Album: New” category.
In his day, John Dee was famous for his contributions to science and for his role as adviser to Queen Elizabeth. Dee assembled the largest library England had ever seen and his mansion at Mortlake outside London was a popular place to visit for foreign emissaries and prominent thinkers.
But Dee harbored a longing for more knowledge than science could offer. He wanted to know about the world and what lies beyond it. Dissatisfied with the limitations of contemporary wisdom, he turned to the spirit world for guidance. What he found was going to influence the Western Mystery tradition forever.
In 1581 Dee contacts the angels for the first time. He soon has to accept that he is not a talented medium. Enter Edward Kelley, a much younger man of low social background and a nasty habit of necromancy. Kelley is excellent with the crystal ball and the two start a collaboration that will take them through countless angelic worlds. Parallel to their spiritual vision quests, Dee and Kelley sojourned through the European courts entertaining kings and emperors with their seances and alchemical experiments.
There is a book for the modern youth that will serve this generation like “1984” served the previous generation. Of course young people today cannot imagine the challenges during the Cold War era up to the 1990’s, when technology and the shift of consciousness that came with mobile phones, the internet, and in 2005 Facebook and YouTube, and digital surveillance, the “Little Brother” must be the right book for people to read, to be awakened to reality.
Filled with sharp dialogue and detailed descriptions of how to counteract gait-recognition cameras, arphids (radio frequency ID tags), wireless Internet tracers and other surveillance devices, this work makes its admittedly didactic point within a tautly crafted fictional framework
You can Buy Little Brother here, or even download it for free from the same site (your choice). The author believes in freedom so he relased his book in a variety of free e-book formats as well as the one you can pay for.
Then there is the computer game Watch Dogs. I want this game. It can teach people how the world has come to be in this age. You spend your time hacking into systems. Of course to me, it is just nostalgia. I already did things like that in the early 90’s. But people need to know that we live in a society where people are accused of being pirates or terrorists for taking pictures in a cinema or of a subway station, while ordinary people are tracked, monitored and taken pictures of every day. Even the cellphone in your pocket can be a snitch, you never know when that microphone turns on and who is listening.
For the modern Luciferian, knowing the world we live in, its limitations and the possibilities, is like transcending reality in the most basic and physical sense.
My comment to the article The tyranny of censorship, I remember growing up reading Enid Blyton’s books, especially “The famous five”. I remember falling in love with one of the characters, a boy my age. But the book did not corrupt me (I had a favourite in kindergarten already).
I found a blog called “Lucifer Luceafar Luceafarul”. It seems to be very freshly made, but already there are many inspiring articles to be found. I particularly found the article Rod of Asclepius and the Caduceus very interesting. I am following this blog now and at the same time recommending it to others.
There are also links to other Luciferians, among other things.
I listen to music from all over the world. I believe you can understand a culture through its music. I like especially the old and traditional music, since it can better capture the pure essence of that race or culture. When I need to cheer up, I find that traditional north Thai music is huge inspiration to hot summer nights, mostly perhaps because their climate all year around is very hot, but I can feel it is appropriate to listen to thai music on a hot and humid midsummer evening. The Lao, Khmer (Cambodian) people also have similar music, maybe because the Khmer empire used to cover all these countries in ancient times.
The WordPress.com statistic monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Thanks to everyone who contributed with feedback, information and comments.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 15,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals
Great movie, based on JRR tolkien’s book with the same title. Although I much more enjoyed reading the book, a lot of things that you can describe in a book just doesn’t translate to film as a medium. Seeing it in 3D was kind of annoying, as the cheap polarized glasses reflect light from the floor and doesn’t block the wavelengths as well. 48 frames per second gave beautiful shots, however the action scenes was noisy both visually and in terms of noise. Although the effects were quite dramatic and believable, as usual in movies these days the computer graphic overlay just doesn’t make monsters realistic enough, mostly due to them having no inertia, making them move too much and too fast, and then the lighting is wrong.
Gandalf looks really old, which is quite funny since the plot is set 60 years earlier than the first Lord of the Ring movie.
Love the glowing Elf sword Bilbo has! Not to mention the ring that makes him invisible. Evrything about the ring kind of reminds me about Enochian
Magick. Funny coincidence since I plan to do enochian work and post some of my results.
