    CONTROLLED DISCLOSURE & Rebranding UFOs. Richard Dolan: The Big Picture.


    Richard Dolan
    Streamed live 4/6/2019

    We are in an era of tightening censorship and deplatforming of ideas that are unwelcome to the corporations and power elite at the top of our social and political hierarchy. At the same time, the UFO subject continues to slip out, more and more, into our public discourse. What is the result? Richard Dolan argues that "disclosure" of UFOs is happening, albeit within a controlled setting, and of course lots of spin.

    Thinking

    Bernardo Kastrup - Reality? It's All in Your Mind

    LegaliseFreedom1



    Bernardo Kastrup discusses his book 'The Idea of the World: A Multi-disciplinary Argument for the Mental Nature of Reality'.

    In his most cogent and compelling work to date, Kastrup's theory of reality offers a grounded alternative to the frenzy of unrestrained abstractions and unexamined assumptions in philosophy and science today. The Idea of the World makes a rigorous case for the primacy of mind in nature, examining what can be learned about the nature of reality based on conceptual parsimony, straightforward logic, and empirical evidence from fields as diverse as physics and neuroscience. It compiles an overarching case for idealism - the notion that reality is essentially mental.

    The author begins by exposing the logical fallacies and internal contradictions of the reigning physicalist paradigm and popular alternatives such as panpsychism. The main objections to idealism are also systematically refuted. The book closes with an analysis of the hidden psychological motivations behind mainstream physicalism and the implications of idealism for the way we relate to each other and the world. The view of reality presented here makes sense of the many mysteries which mainstream materialist science simply cannot fathom. It reconciles the classical and quantum worlds and disposes of the so-called 'hard problem' of consciousness. It may even hold the secret to the origin and meaning of life.

    Nice synchronicity at 43:15.

    Host asks if Bernardo has ever read Owen Barfield. He says he just had a book of Owen's in his hands a couple of hours ago. The host references Saving the Appearances and Bernardo says that was the book he had in his hands.

    Well, for better or for worse, that sort of situation does not exist here in Belgium, because according to Belgian law, mobile homes may only be stationed on recreational ground, and one may not have one's permanent residence on recreational ground. By consequence, anyone who owns a mobile home or another property on recreational ground must also have another place of residence, and this other place of residence must also be the person's official address. As for how much time such a person would be spending at either location, the law states that the person must spend at least one day a year at their official address.

    But that all said, there are of course other malpractices in the housing industry, specifically with regard to very substandard housing that is being offered for rent at very high prices. So in the end, the exploitation simply gets moved to another segment of the market. On the upside, such exploitation is of course illegal, and so the tenant has a legal recourse against landlords behaving in that manner.

    And now that I've said all of the above, that Frank Rolfe character is a certifiable sociopath who deserves to be kicked in the nuts ─ and very hard too!

    OMG! This is fascinating


    Skeptico:
    Robert Forte, The Softer Side of CIA Psychedelic Mind Control |407|

    Do you know where you are, right now?

    I’m in a drug trial.

    What do you think is wrong with you?

    I’m sick. That I don’t matter.

    That’s Emma Stone and Jonah Hill participating in a futuristic drug experiment in the Netflix series, Maniac.

    What would you say this trial is showing you about yourself?

    Is this therapy now?

    It’s not therapy, it’s science.

    Science indeed. I mention that the show is futuristic but it’s cleverly not futuristic because, as many of you know, the history of government sponsored, pharmaceutical-based, social engineering mind-control stuff is well established.

    But we might even take it one step further, as today’s guest Robert Forte does, and say that the history of psychedelic drugs is a microcosm of the history of religion (Entheogens and the Future of Religion).

    Alex Tsakiris: I really want to understand how you’re juggling these two things, because what I hear from Wasson is this both and kind of thing. Yeah, he’s a lying ass, CIA lifetime player, yes, but I also get the sense that he’s someone who either before, during or after, has woken up to the larger reality that he’s stumbled into or that he’s been pushed into.

    Robert Forte: Well, I’m glad you put it that way because I’m still kind of… when I think back to my meetings with Wasson, he had a very peculiar personality around me. I think there was some genuine affection and respect for me as a young man, who really wanted to understand what was going on. You know, I don’t really know, I’d really love to go back into his archives and read more of his letters.

    I gave a lecture in New York shortly after my realization of his relationship to the American fascists and then my access to the archives was denied.

    Now, this is another one of those level-3 Skeptiko conversations that kind of goes in a lot of different directions, including the LSD movement versus the LSD movements. We talk a lot about Timothy Leary, since today’s guest spent quite a bit of time with him. We talk about his early history. His experience with the CIA. His claim that the CIA wasn’t all bad in the early ‘50s but then they turned bad and he turned against them. And I love Leary’s quote that a third of what he said was bullshit, a third of what he said was dead wrong and a third of what he said was a base hit, but a 333-batting average makes you a Hall of Famer.

    We also talk about Aleister Crowley and whether he really was the sick puppy he seems to be and how he’s involved in this mind-control thing.

    And of course, we talk about Robert’s amazing journey through this entire psychedelics, entheogen thing, including his relationship with clandestine CIA operative, Gordon Wasson.

    We also talk about Ram Dass, Neem Karoli Baba and contrast Ram Dass to Timothy Leary in some ways you might find interesting if you’re at all into that stuff.

    This guy Robert Forte is quite an amazing figure in history that you probably haven’t heard about. Stick around for my interview. I think you’ll really enjoy it.https://skeptiko.com/robert-forte-th...d-control-407/

    Trump: Washington should have named Mount Vernon after himself ...

    "President Trump thinks George Washington missed a branding opportunity by not naming Mount Vernon after himself, according to a report.

    “If he was smart, he would’ve put his name on it,” Trump said during a tour of the first president’s estate in Virginia a year ago that he shared with French President Emmanuel Macron, three people briefed on the exchange told Politico this week.

    “You’ve got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you,” Trump reportedly added after learning that Washington was one of the major real-estate movers and shakers of his era.

    Mount Vernon President and CEO Doug Bradburn, who served as the VIP tour guide, pointed out that Washington was successful in getting the nation’s capital named after himself, to which Trump conceded laughingly, according to the news outlet.

    Bradburn later described the 45-minute tour as “truly bizarre” after he found it difficult to sustain Trump’s interest in the compound of his first counterpart, the sources told Politico.

    The Macrons were far more knowledgeable about the history of the property than Trump, Bradburn has reportedly told several people.

    Trump is open about the fact that he doesn’t read much history and said in July 2016 that he had never read a presidential biography.

    Bradburn “was desperately trying to get [Trump] interested in” Washington’s house, a source told Politico, so he spoke in terms the president understands best — telling him that Washington was an 18th century real-estate mogul.

    Trump asked whether Washington was “really rich,” another source familiar with the visit said.

    In fact, Washington was either the richest or among the richest Americans of his time, thanks mostly to his real estate acquisitions.

    “That is what Trump was really the most excited about,” the source said.

    Trump did find one thing he liked at Mount Vernon — the bed where Washington died of a throat infection in 1799.

    Trump — who is infamously picky about where he sleeps — felt out the bedpost and told his guest that he approved, according to three people briefed on the event.

    “A good bed to die in,” he said."
