Techniques for Consciousness Change – Robert Anton Wilson

Excellent interview with one of my favorite subversive philosophers, Robert Anton Wilson, on the topic of self-directed consciousness change, or “meta-programming the bio-computer” as Wilson often refers to these techniques.

As usual with Wilson, the topics range freely across many disciplines from psychedelic drugs to yoga to quantum physics to Sufi mystics and CIA brainwashing conspiracies. This is an excerpt from the full audio program, “Robert Anton Wilson Explains Everything“.

Civilization Lost

Civilization Lost is a great documentary from the History Channel (available on YouTube) that lays out the evidence for a remotely ancient civilization that predates the currently accepted historical timeline and paradigm. They spend a good deal of time on the discovery of Gobekli Tepe, a relatively recent discovery of an ancient megalithic site which was deliberately buried and contains artifacts which have been dated by mainstream archaeologists to at least 10,000 B.C.

The internet is awesome. Google Earth is awesome too.  Click for map comparing the location of the site in relation to Giza and the Great Pyramid…

Easter Island Statue Project

Easter Island Statue Project - Moai unburied

I had no idea there was an official Easter Island Statue Project, based in the U.S. in Santa Monica, California.

From the official site:

The Easter Island Statue Preservation Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation established by Johannes Van Tilburg and Jo Anne Van Tilburg.  Its principle mission is to support the research, education, and conservation initiatives created by and through the Easter Island Statue Project (EISP).  Implicit in this mission is the recognition that our specific research—along with the body of data we have generated and the scientific insights we have achieved—are the main tools required to promote Rapa Nui site preservation and encourage economic sustainability.
