1.20.19: In Dreams

“…somebody comes into the house to install this red box-like machine. It has a red button on it to set it and turn it on. I somehow manage to program it with the power or gravitational pull or energy of “trillions” of suns or other measurements. I have no idea how I did this—but it is bad. A man that looks like Pres. Obama is there, and he is highly alarmed that I did this. I want to leave the room before it “explodes”…there is this eerie energy/force-field coming off of it. We suddenly run out of the room, but the energy/force fills the house…warping time & possibly reality. As we try to leave the house, we see other “versions” of ourselves run through the house; these are possibly versions of us from slightly earlier (or later) in time. It’s like what happens when an event like a black hole happens. Time itself is being warped…linear time is being revealed for what it really is.”

1.19.19: Augurs And Elon

“I would argue that inside your mind was some pattern of neurological activity that was not there before you exchanged e-mail with me. The ‘Root Representation.’ It is not me. I’m this big slug of carbon and oxygen and some other stuff on this cot right next to you. The Root Rep, by contrast, is the thing that you carry around in your brain for the rest of your life, barring some kind of neurological insult, that your mind uses to represent me.”
— Neal Stephenson, “Cryptonomicon”

1.17.19: Primal And Post-Human

“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”

Is Or Is Not Jim Carrey Playing Terence McKenna In Biopic?

fdsv.jpg

See, here was a story that at first seemed so easy to blog about, a real “slam dunk”: Jim Carrey (whom I’ve written a lot about on this site) was allegedly starring in a new biopic about ethnobotanist and philosopher Terence McKenna called True Hallucinations. The McKenna fan site McKennite published a story on it April 6th called, intriguingly, “Jim Carrey Preparing For Psychedelic Role By Staying In Nature And Taking Magic Mushrooms.”

But now the site Gossip Cop claims that Carrey’s rep exclusively talked to them and has denied the actor’s involvement in any such film. Further, the rep denies that Carrey made any of the statements quoted in the McKennite article.
