    hmm ...


    Everything Is An Agenda - Randy Maugans

    Freeman Fly

    Can you face your dark side? Are you speaking your mind? How do we find the patience in a microaggression world? Trivial things blow up out of proportion to the life that we lead. Like Markoff Chaney of The Illuminatus! Trilogy nuanced aggravations are bringing chaos into the world and it looks bad. Imposition of order equals escalation of chaos. Can our chaos be beautiful and artistic? Everything is an agenda and we need to cut through the muck to find our true selves."

    I finally got to watch the classic silent film Pandora's box ...

    The star of this film with no doubt lived the life, and her influences (even though she was snubbed by Hollywood) had an amazing affect upon modern women, stye and society ... Though few today would even know her name ... Still her image truly lives on ...

    Louise Brooks




    Lulu


    Natalie Merchant

    I recently came across the Wizard of Oz silent film. I had forgotten there was such a thing.

    I must add, as person who lived at the Ranch (and in the Trout Lake community) for an extended time period ... Much of what's being reported here, becomes just the norm, though i have met locals who are totally oblivious ... Giggle

    David J. Moore - UFOs, Reality and Human Evolution Part One



    David J. Moore discusses his book 'Evolutionary Metaphors: UFOs, New Existentialism and the Future Paradigm'.

    People have been witnessing strange lights and objects in the sky for all of recorded history. Their modern guise as UFOs began in earnest during the 20th century, particularly in the wake of the Roswell incident in 1947. Despite thousands of reported UFO sightings, close encounters, abductions, and even crash landings, physical evidence for the existence of alien spacecraft and their inhabitants is practically non-existent. Shadow government cover-ups are claimed but official disclosure seems as far off as ever.

    Other theories propose that UFOs may be inter-dimensional entities, or even individual or collective psychic projections. Whatever their true nature, the question remains – what lies behind them and what do they want? Do they present an existential threat to the Earth or are they merely messengers from some higher intelligence? In urging us to rethink the nature of time and space, and break down the dualistic barriers between mind and matter, are anomalous phenomena such as UFOs forcing us to wake up to a wider reality and if so, what might this mean for the future of humanity?

    I first met Neil Kramer (and his wife) when he first visited Trout Lake, Washington by invite to speak at the Eceti Ranch in 2011 ... Upon our introductory converse, he asked (Gio) how does one come about living in such a beautiful setting ... My simple advice to him was - Just do it !

    And very soon thereafter, he would decide to come and live (under majestic Mt Adams along the White Salmon River) for nearly a year to write his first book The Unfoldment: The Organic Path to Clarity, Power, and Transformation

    Question

    Another fascinating personage i got to meet while Up at the Ranch ...

    The Incredible & Controversial Life of Dr Roger Lier
    The Surgeon Who Removed Alien Implants...

    "Dr Roger Leir graduated in 1961 with a bachelor’s in science before qualifying as a certified podiatrist in 1964. But while on the surface, Leir appeared like any other up and coming medical professional, he also harboured a deep belief in alien life not only existing elsewhere in the universe but that could also be visiting Earth. This led to a strong interested in the concept of supposed alien implants embedded in alien abductees, to which Roger used his skills to try and uncover the truth"...

    The ever progressive Evergreen state of being ...



    Washington May Become the First State to Legalize Human Composting



    'What would you like to happen to your body when you die?'



    Death Reimagined

    "Grandma is in the garden. No, literally.

    There’s something beautiful in deciding how one’s final moments should be confined to the memory of our loved ones. Advances in technology and changing mindsets seem to have people wondering why a coffin in the ground should have to be the only option of final resting place. Residents in Washington state have a brand new vision of returning to the Earth. Now a bill being sponsored in the state’s legislature could see Washington become the first state to legalize human composting.

    A Tree of Me


    The bill, backed by state Senator Jamie Pedersen, would allow for the “recomposition” of human remains, a process which speeds up decomposition and turns remains into a nutrient-packed soil which could be returned to families.

    “People from all over the state who wrote to me are very excited about the prospect of becoming a tree or having a different alternative for themselves,” Pedersen told NBCnews.

    Although “becoming a tree” and other futuristic burial ideas aren’t entirely new concepts, Washington would become the first state to allow human composting if the bill is passed. The idea isn’t just futuristic, it’s also economical. More and more Americans are turning to crowdfunding to support funeral costs, with the average funeral costing more than $7,000 in 2017, according to the National Funeral Directors Association. The recomposition process in comparison is somewhat cheaper with costs expected to fall around $5,500.

    Safety First

    The process is very similar to traditional composting. Unembalmed human remains are placed in a composting chamber and left to decompose with organic material like woodchips or straw. Air is occasionally pulled into the chamber to help microbes speed up decomposition and in about one month all that remains is a cubic yard of compost.

    A five-month study, in which six donor bodies were decomposed, was led by researcher Lynne Carpenter-Boggs, Associate Professor of Sustainable and Organic Agriculture at Washington State. The study was carefully controlled to prevent spreading any harmful pathogens, a concern which led to the defeat of a similar bill sponsored by Pederson in 2017.

    Carpenter-Boggs’ study concluded in August that the remains produced were safe and she plans to submit her research for publication in 2019. If the bill passes, it would take effect May 1, 2020. Until then, we can keep dreaming of “becoming trees” but Pederson’s bill could open doors to new burial alternatives and ways we can choose to have our memory honored."

    My husband just put Brandi Carlile on his music list. Thanks for sharing clips from Howard. He's an interesting dude. My brother loves him and listens to him on the radio. I have found him to be in turns funny and not. I don't always care for his humor.
