Hacking Democracy

Ok, crewthings, I know an hour 20 is a long time to watch anything on google video, although I also know some of you have done it before. Still, I would like you guys to watch this, the whole thing. It's about how easy it is to hack into electronic voting systems, and if you've been following this stuff at all, you know the doc is out of date, and that really, it's worse than this, as proved by a Princeton team. However, I still want you to watch all the way to end, wait for the woman crying after the test which demonstrates that votes can be stolen with no trace left. It reminded me, an longstanding voting-cynic, of finding out my parents put out the presents, not Santa Claus. I found it funny, but then, I'm a bit cynical. the idealist notes that such a reaction demonstrates how much our attitudes about government are rooted in emotional, imaginative sensibilities. Americans often talk about democracy like Christians talk about god.

Reactions? Arguments?

[music |Hawkwind - Moonglum]

Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God's providence he was catch'd,
With a dark lantern and burning match
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip Hoorah !
Hip hip Hoorah !
A penny loaf to feed ol'Pope,
A farthing cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down,
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar,'
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head,
Then we'll say: ol'Pope is dead.



Happy Guy Fawkes, mateys!

Tara encouraged me to share this with the crew since it is both weird, funny, and perhaps enlightening.

While sitting in za-zen yesterday, I had a vision, which happens to me sometimes. This one was unusual in that I was seeing it first-person where in most of my visions, I am watching myself from outside. It's not unprecedented for me, just uncommon.

I was standing in a desert, and a blue convertible car rode over a sand dune, jumping over it like any other hill. The driver was me, wearing orange robes, like the Sangha. I immediately identified the driver as my Buddha-nature. He rode past me, leaving me in the dust. I had the urge to catch up with him, so I started running after the car. I then realized that I didn't need to physically catch up with Buddha-nature because it was already in me, so i simply shifted my focus until I was driving the car (still in first-person, so I did not see non-Buddha-me from the outside until this point). I continued driving through the desert, then began meditating, and the vision faded away.

Interesting, ja?

Musings on a man, on his birthday [Oct. 12th, 2006|01:04 pm]

It seems today is Crowley's birthday. Now, I'm not especially given to idolization, or idolatry for that matter, but I do like Crowley's work. I don't agree with all of it, and it hasn't moved me to learn Kabbalah to see if I can really swallow it if I tried, but he did lay a good bit of groundwork for a more skeptical approach to the occult, a way into looking at magic(k) without getting soggy in milk, as it were. For that, I do appreciate him. If you haven't read any of his work that goes in that particular direction, or makes that particular direction clear, then I advise you to read Magick Without Tears in which he lays down his perspective and advice for messing around with the occult in more plain terms.

Also, from Crowley, or at least by contrasting Crowley with other contemporary thought on the occult, I learned the lesson that the often-heard maxim "be careful" (sometimes stated as: "OMG don't mess with that or you could go CRAZY !!!!!!!!111!!") is not the path to more interesting states of consciousness (or at least, not the states of consciousness I find more interesting). nurodancer is right in that some people don't want to go that far, and I agree that the choice to play with your mind is each person's to make. I do think that sanity is perhaps too small of yard for playing with my mind, and I learned that from thinking more seriously about Uncle Al and what he was up to.

So there you go, mateys. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

I can't help take note of the fact that RAW never actually mentions dying even though the people around him keep doing it.

Anyway I'm glad that he's gotten so much support thus far.

BOB'S NOTE:

Dear Friends, my God, what can I say. I am dumbfounded, flabbergasted, and totally stunned by the charity and compassion that has poured in here the last three days.

To steal from Jack Benny, "I do not deserve this, but I also have severe leg problems and I don't deserve them either."

Because he was a kind man as well as a funny one, Benny was beloved. I find it hard to believe that I am equally beloved and especially that I deserve such love.

Whoever you are, wherever you are, know that my love is with you.

You have all reminded me that despite George W. Bush and all his cohorts, there is still a lot of beautiful kindness in the world.

Blessings.

Robert Anton Wilson

Crack your cage apart

We now have a dwarf planet named Eris!

Well, now we can give rise to ambition to build a space colony on Eris. I had originally thought of the Jolly Hastur's operations as being based out of a collection of asteroids, but now, Eris sounds pretty attractive, like living on the frontier of the solar system.

Today, reality changed. A group of scientists in Prague decided that the solar system has one less planet than it did yesterday. Now, one can argue that since only the definition changed, the solar system has always had eight planets, but as a matter of fact, all of us grew up thinking there were nine planets, and everyone born from this day onward will never be taught such a thing. Does this subtraction of a planet really make much of a change in our everyday lives? Other than the astronomers (amateur or professional), not really. However, Iadvise marking this moment and others like it as a sign of how much of your reality emanates from signals emitted but other people, especially the priest-class known as "scientists" who hold little sway over the monarchy, but much sway over our view of the world.
