[FairfieldLife] Parallel by comparison, two Millenarians.

2013-12-25 Thread dhamiltony2k5
Bringing Heaven on Earth:
 
 
 Fabulous look-back article at one of the larger millenarians of the 20th 
Century. It also reads so parallel to aspects of the history of Maharishi and 
TM. Would make a great thesis. Comparing Mao Tse Tung and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 
as two of the 20th Century's larger millenarian revolutionaries. Don't get 
distracted or derailed by the detail but a comparison is quite parallel in many 
elements, even as the present presents itself to either movement, post-Mao 
communist China or communal TM.org after Maharishi. 
 
 
 Take a read, it is interesting by comparison:

Since WP8 debuted last November, Microsoft (and Nokia for that matter) 
have struggled hard to earn legitimacy with customers --- and it's 
starting to pay off. Now, must-have apps like Instagram and Vine have 
found homes in the Microsoft Store, with new entries like Flipboard on 
the way. And with Blackberry circling the drain, the platform has 
finally taken third place behind Android and iOS on the world stage, 
even leading the pack in some markets...

Feste suppurated:
 

  Just one of your innumerable problems, auth, is that you are so obsessed 
with attacking other people that you lose all clarity of judgment. You

the past (I don't follow your links), but to misremember is not to lie. A lie 
has to be deliberate. The person has to know he is telling an untruth. 
 

 And you're lying now. You saw the quote of your post I put up; you even 
complimented yourself on it.  So there's no issue of misremembering, no 
matter how leaky your memory may be getting, nor any issue of having to follow 
links, since I saved you the trouble of clicking.
 

 Nor is there, in fact, any issue about whether Robin and I were serious in our 
denunciations of each other in that exchange. We were playing games, as you 
obviously knew when you wrote the post I quoted, and as everyone else knew when 
they read our posts. (Oh, except Steve, who had to have the situation explained 
to him in very simple terms before he understood.)
 

  Opinions expressed may also change over time. That is not lying, either. 
Your hatred distorts your ability to use words correctly, so you make false 
accusations. 

 

 Mmm. Except that you claimed you didn't know, not that you had a different 
opinion back then.
 

 Feste, you can't dig yourself out of this except by distorting the facts. I 
predicted you didn't have the integrity to back me up in refuting Richard's 
lie, and I was right.
 

  There is no need to respond with links that prove what you are saying, 
because unlike you I have no interest in going back to the archives to check on 
something I may have said a long time ago. 
 

 Again: No need. I reproduced the post in question for you, and you read it and 
found it good. But then, rather than acknowledge what you knew at the time, you 
pretended it was all a big mystery to you.
 

 The very *content* of that exchange with Robin made it obvious that it was all 
in fun, just as the content of your post made it obvious that you were well 
aware of that. You weren't that clueless then, and you aren't that clueless now.
 

  Who cares? Only you. The truth is that you are a malicious individual who 
has an obsessive need to brand people you do not like as liars. 
 

 You have it backwards. It's their lying that leads me not to like them. You 
and I had been on pretty good terms until you decided you were going to make 
points with Share by attacking me, and began to use dishonesty as a weapon.
 

 I must say it's quite a stretch to characterize someone's opposition to 
dishonesty as malicious and a very ugly trait. I suggest that says a lot 
more about you than it does about me.
 

  Of course you are unable to see it for yourself, but again I ask you: Why 
do so many people on this forum despise you? 

 

 I already told you why: people with integrity are never popular with those who 
lack it. Why are you asking again?
 

  Why are you always involved in arguments here in which everyone is a liar 
except you? 
 

 Well, I'm not, actually. Most people here are honest, and we have arguments 
that don't involve issues of dishonesty. (Ann, DoctorDumbass, Seraphita, John, 
Mike, Michael, Paligap, even poor Steve come immediately to mind.) Not even all 
my arguments with liars are about their dishonesty.
 

 Or to answer another way, except you is because (duh) I don't lie.
 

  The best thing you could do now would be to apologize for your insulting 
language toward me, but that would require a level of decency on your part that 
you have never before shown. 
 

 You first. If your apology is sincere, I'll likely accept it. Then we'll see 
what else needs to be said. I'm not holding my breath, however.

[FairfieldLife] Colin Wilson R.I.P.

2013-12-25 Thread s3raphita
Missed this one! Writer Colin Wilson died on December 5th so he had the 
misfortune of dying on the same day as Nelson Mandela! (Like Aldous Huxley and 
C S Lewis with John F Kennedy.)  

 I've read and enjoyed a fair few of his books. He had his own cod philosophy 
which involved something he called Faculty X, a latent ability in people to 
achieve intenser forms of consciousness. You could never work out exactly what 
he was getting at but his interest in abnormal sexual behaviour and in the 
paranormal worked well in his fiction. Some dismissed him as a scrambled 
egghead!
 

 Although he never learned TM he took a positive interest in it and wrote the 
forward to Joyce Collin-Smith's autobiography of her time with MMY in the 
sixties in the UK. You may find the following extract from Wilson's Dreaming 
to Some Purpose of interest:
 

 But I was also aware that too much relaxation can be dangerous. I recalled a 
strange story told to me by a friend called Joyce Collin-Smith, the 
sister-in-law of one of Ouspenky’s most brilliant disciples, Rodney Collin. In 
August 1960, she became a follower of the Hindu guru, the Maharishi Mahesh 
Yogi, who was convinced that the world could be transformed by ‘transcendental 
meditation’. S he described how she had gone to the house the Maharishi had 
rented near Regents Park, taking a flower as an offering. The Maharishi, a 
little man with a high voice and a sing-song Indian accent, taught her a brief 
mantra in Sanskrit, which immediately brought a strange, deep sense of peace. 
He told her to go and sit near the window, on the carpet; as she did so, the 
mantra seemed to be repeating itself in her brain without her volition. Time 
slipped peacefully by - three hours - before she noticed the evening traffic in 
the street, and realised she had to get home to cook her husband’s dinner.

From then on, the mantra would plunge her into the same deep state of blissful 
serenity. She saw the Maharishi do the same thing repeatedly; once a long queue 
stretched down the corridor of a hotel in Oxford, and the Maharishi saw each 
person in turn, accepted the flower, then touched the donor on the forehead and 
told him to go and sit down; all obviously experienced the same instantaneous 
feeling of peace.

Joyce was by then acting as the Maharishi’s unpaid secretary, and it was she 
who took a phone call from the management saying that an old lady who lived on 
the same floor was complaining about the noise and threatening to leave. Joyce 
asked the Maharishi: ‘What shall we do?’ ‘Do nothing’ said the Maharishi, 
smiling benevolently, ‘It will be all right’. And so it was. They heard nothing 
more from the old lady.

This was one of many examples of the Maharishi’s odd powers, which were to some 
extent telepathic – as was illustrated on another occasion, when he read 
Joyce’s mind as she sat in the audience listening to him, and answered the 
question she meant to ask. Every one of the Maharishi’s followers seemed to be 
happy and light-hearted; he was surrounded by an atmosphere of gaiety.

But Joyce soon noticed that not all was well. Some of the disciples began 
spending more and more time sitting in a state of bliss, and it was obvious 
that they were becoming less and less capable of coping with everyday life. 
They didn’t want to come back and face reality.

Joyce herself began to experience something more disturbing. She found it 
increasingly difficult to focus her mind, and seemed to see too deep into the 
underlying reality of things. She had always understood intellectually that 
everything changes, but now she could actually see it happening. Looking at her 
hands, she would see them change into the hands of a child, and at the same 
time into the hands of an old woman., then into a skeleton. Looking at a chair, 
she could see it as new timber still smelling of sap, and as a worn out old 
chair about to be thrown on the bonfire. Everything fluctuated all the time.

Finally she could stand it no longer, and decided to commit suicide. She took a 
rope and went to a tree in the garden. But as she looked at the rope, she 
suddenly noticed that it was staying still, remaining unchanged. Instead of 
dissolving into strands, then into flax, or becoming old and frayed, it was 
holding steady. The emergency had shaken her subconscious mind awake. Which 
meant that she had to set out to train her mind to fix her attention on the 
present. And as soon as she learned to do this, the problem went away.

By this time she was becoming disillusioned with the Maharishi, who was 
changing from a child-like guru into a super-tycoon, so she left the movement.

Joyce had discovered the same trick I had learned to control [my] panic 
attacks: focusing the mind to prevent it from wavering. The answer lies in one 
word: attention.

Baby Jesus, on this Christmas day please help Yahoo figure this out,

 

 

Buck, have you ever considered using a rich-text editor? It's not complicated. 
 

 yea, what is the deal just lately with pasting in to neo yahoo?  Top down 
replying was working fine taking lightly formatted text copy-paste coming over 
from OpenOffice Writer word processor.   
 

 In the last few days something changed where word-processed writing gets mixed 
up upon pasting something that looks perfectly fine from OpenOfficeWriter in to 
the yahoo box for writing posts as reply.  And new topic posts too now. What a 
mess.  
 

 The reply box seems to open directly now in rich-text format but it seems to 
switch pastings over in to plain text as its neo-yahoo way of handling word 
processing from somewhere else.  Word processing elsewhere has always worked 
fine before until just recently.  Is Yahoo trying to reinvent the wheel or 
something with some brilliant rewriting of software?
 

 I wish Yahoo would stop doing that.  And soon.  I got some really important 
things written already that I need to post.
 

 This post is written straight in to the box, not word processed otherwise and

From The Telegraph:

 Mary Mother of Christ, whose title character will be played by Odeya Rush, a 
16-year-old Israeli-born actress, is one of a series of unashamedly Christian 
biblical epics due to appear next year, marking an unprecedented overture by 
Hollywood to America’s evangelical heartland.

 In March audiences will be treated to Noah, a $150million special 
effects-laden extravaganza, in which Russell Crowe will build an ark and rescue 
mankind from the Great Flood. Harry Potter actress Emma Watson will play his 
adopted daughter, and Sir Anthony Hopkins is portraying Methuselah. The ark was 
built on Long Island, New York.


 Noah will be followed by Sir Ridley Scott’s Exodus, in which Christian Bale, 
as Moses, will part the Red Sea. Scenes from ancient Egypt have been 
reconstructed in southern Spain, with Bale wielding a bow and arrow and 
Sigourney Weaver playing the Pharaoh’s wife. Scott has described the film, in a 
less than godly phrase, as “F-- huge”.
 Another movie of Moses’s life called Gods and Kings is also planned. Steven 
Spielberg was due to make it but has been replaced by Ang Lee, who won the Best 
Director Oscar this year for Life of Pi. 
 Meanwhile, Son of God will tell the story of Jesus’s life, with Portuguese 
actor Diogo Morgado in the lead role. 
 Will Smith is said to be planning a film based on the story of Cain and Abel, 
and Brad Pitt is rumoured to be playing Pontius Pilate in a separate project.
  There will also be Resurrection, in which a Roman soldier is sent to 
investigate Christ’s death. It has been likened to “Gladiator, with a mystery 
bent”.
 Phil Cooke, a film-maker and media consultant to Christian organisations, said 
Hollywood’s epiphany had financial, not spiritual, origins. “What’s happened is 
they’ve understood it’s very good business to take Christians seriously, and 
this is a real serious market,” he said. “For years Hollywood bent over 
backwards to reach special interest groups, be it feminists or 
environmentalists. It has finally realised that there are 91  million 
evangelical Christians in America.”

 Missed this one! Writer Colin Wilson died on December 5th so he had the 
misfortune of dying on the same day as Nelson Mandela! (Like Aldous Huxley and 
C S Lewis with John F Kennedy.)  

 I've read and enjoyed a fair few of his books. He had his own cod philosophy 
which involved something he called Faculty X, a latent ability in people to 
achieve intenser forms of consciousness. You could never work out exactly what 
he was getting at but his interest in abnormal sexual behaviour and in the 
paranormal worked well in his fiction. Some dismissed him as a scrambled 
egghead!
 

 Although he never learned TM he took a positive interest in it and wrote the 
forward to Joyce Collin-Smith's autobiography of her time with MMY in the 
sixties in the UK. You may find the following extract from Wilson's Dreaming 
to Some Purpose of interest:
 

 But I was also aware that too much relaxation can be dangerous. I recalled a 
strange story told to me by a friend called Joyce Collin-Smith, the 
sister-in-law of one of Ouspenky’s most brilliant disciples, Rodney Collin. In 
August 1960, she became a follower of the Hindu guru, the Maharishi Mahesh 
Yogi, who was convinced that the world could be transformed by ‘transcendental 
meditation’. S he described how she had gone to the house the Maharishi had 
rented near Regents Park, taking a flower as an offering. The Maharishi, a 
little man with a high voice and a sing-song Indian accent, taught her a brief 
mantra in Sanskrit, which immediately brought a strange, deep sense of peace. 
He told her to go and sit near the window, on the carpet; as she did so, the 
mantra seemed to be repeating itself in her brain without her volition. Time 
slipped peacefully by - three hours - before she noticed the evening traffic in 
the street, and realised she had to get home to cook her husband’s dinner.

From then on, the mantra would plunge her into the same deep state of blissful 
serenity. She saw the Maharishi do the same thing repeatedly; once a long queue 
stretched down the corridor of a hotel in Oxford, and the Maharishi saw each 
person in turn, accepted the flower, then touched the donor on the forehead and 
told him to go and sit down; all obviously experienced the same instantaneous 
feeling of peace.

Joyce was by then acting as the Maharishi’s unpaid secretary, and it was she 
who took a phone call from the management saying that an old lady who lived on 
the same floor was complaining about the noise and threatening to leave. Joyce 
asked the Maharishi: ‘What shall we do?’ ‘Do nothing’ said the Maharishi, 
smiling benevolently, ‘It will be all right’. And so it was. They heard nothing

[FairfieldLife] RE: Happy birthday God

2013-12-25 Thread jr_esq
S3,
 

 I've reconsidered the birth date of Jesus.  Here is my conclusion which I've 
posted in another forum:
 

 Nobody really knows the exact birth date of Jesus.  IMO, the early Christian 
Church fathers used western astrology to reconstruct the date of December 25.  
Specifically, December 21 is the winter solstice and is considered to be the 
death of the Sun.  Then they added three days after this date to represent the 
birth or the rising of a new Sun.
 
 

 However, IMO, Jesus was actually born on March 21, 2 BC, at about 19:00 hours 
in Bethlehem, Israel.  On that day, there were several good yogas that would 
indicate the birth of a king.  For example,
 

 1. The Sun was was exalted in Mesha or Aries and was in conjunction with 
Mercury.
 

 2. Jupiter was exalted in Karka or Cancer and in conjunction with Chandra.
 

 3.  The time would have been about 7:00 PM since that would be the time when 
the Chandra would be in exact conjunction with Jupiter.  The bright star 
mentioned in the bible would have been Jupiter.  And, at this specific time, 
the conjunction would have occurred at mid-heaven or the 10th house from the 
rashi of Tula or Libra, and Chandra was in the nakshatra of Pushyami.
 

 The three wise men who were looking for this birth were actually astrologers 
from various parts of the ancient world.  It is believed that one of them came 
from as far as India.  When they found Jesus they paid homage to him and gave 
their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.  
 

 And the rest is history.

We saw this place today, out by George Strait's ranch. The house in the

houses daughter's spouse's daughter is married to George Michael. If you
look real close you might see George in the window looking out at me across
the field, probably taking a snapshot of me peering over the fence. Go

 Hey MIke, it's wonderful to read what you have to say about your raptors. You 
are obviously very well-versed in your hobby and it shows. I always love to 
read what others have to say about their dealings with animals, especially if 
they are wild animals which, let's face it, eagles, falcons and hawks certainly 
are. I would imagine one would also have to be very brave to handle them 
because they will never, ever truly be tame. I would think you would have to 
earn a certain degree of respect from them as well as trust in order to handle 
them day to day. You also would have to have watched and learned over a long 
period of time how to read them and understand what they are all about. It is 
not a realm I have ever dealt with in terms of pure predatory power which they 
possess. I, personally, would never call them critters, it makes them sound 
like opossums, raccoons or muskrats.

  Merry Christmas Judy. All the *critters* are doing well. I lost my wild

Spinoni was pointing. An odd thing happened a couple of days ago. My male 
caught a sparrow and when he jumped up onto  my fist, a wild adult Tundra 
Peregrine stooped at him and came within about 15 feet of us and then flew off. 
They don't normally winter here but I had let one go last year in the same 
place. I'm thinking she wintered out there and returned for this year. Nice way 
for her to say *hello*, I'm doing well! I'll do the same with the wild caught

 From The Telegraph:

 Mary Mother of Christ, whose title character will be played by Odeya Rush, a 
16-year-old Israeli-born actress, is one of a series of unashamedly Christian 
biblical epics due to appear next year, marking an unprecedented overture by 
Hollywood to America’s evangelical heartland.

 In March audiences will be treated to Noah, a $150million special 
effects-laden extravaganza, in which Russell Crowe will build an ark and rescue 
mankind from the Great Flood. Harry Potter actress Emma Watson will play his 
adopted daughter, and Sir Anthony Hopkins is portraying Methuselah. The ark was 
built on Long Island, New York.


 Noah will be followed by Sir Ridley Scott’s Exodus, in which Christian Bale, 
as Moses, will part the Red Sea. Scenes from ancient Egypt have been 
reconstructed in southern Spain, with Bale wielding a bow and arrow and 
Sigourney Weaver playing the Pharaoh’s wife. Scott has described the film, in a 
less than godly phrase, as “F-- huge”.
 Another movie of Moses’s life called Gods and Kings is also planned. Steven 
Spielberg was due to make it but has been replaced by Ang Lee, who won the Best 
Director Oscar this year for Life of Pi. 
 Meanwhile, Son of God will tell the story of Jesus’s life, with Portuguese 
actor Diogo Morgado in the lead role. 
 Will Smith is said to be planning a film based on the story of Cain and Abel, 
and Brad Pitt is rumoured to be playing Pontius Pilate in a separate project.
  There will also be Resurrection, in which a Roman soldier is sent to 
investigate Christ’s death. It has been likened to “Gladiator, with a mystery 
bent”.
 Phil Cooke, a film-maker and media consultant to Christian organisations, said 
Hollywood’s epiphany had financial, not spiritual, origins. “What’s happened is 
they’ve understood it’s very good business to take Christians seriously, and 
this is a real serious market,” he said. “For years Hollywood bent over 
backwards to reach special interest groups, be it feminists or 
environmentalists. It has finally realised that there are 91  million 
evangelical Christians in America.”

they are wild animals which, let's face it, eagles, falcons and hawks certainly 
are. I would imagine one would also have to be very brave to handle them 
because they will never, ever truly be tame. I would think you would have to 
earn a certain degree of respect from them as well as trust in order to handle 
them day to day. You also would have to have watched and learned over a long 
period of time how to read them and understand what they are all about. It is 
not a realm I have ever dealt with in terms of pure predatory power which they 
possess. I, personally, would never call them critters, it makes them sound 
like opossums, raccoons or muskrats.

John, very interesting interpretation of the meaning of the cross, that the 
horizontal line represents the movement of the mind from past to future while 
the vertical line indicates the movement of the soul. Also It sounds like the 
25th is when the sun again moves, thus it's clear that the days are getting

No, Richard, it's trolling and lying, not parody. You want it to be taken 
seriously.
 

 As you know, I've mostly ignored you except when you've told lies that some of 
those here might not recognize as such. This past couple of weeks you've gone 
so far out on a limb with your trolling and lying and made yourself look so 
ridiculous that I'm pretty sure everyone knows now to ignore you.
 
 Almost 99% of everything I've posted to this forum for the past ten years has 
been parody, Judy, but you are too stupid to realize that. The difference 
between you and me and Robin is that you actually take this stuff seriously. Go 
figure.
 
 And, not only seriously, but as something that is directed at you as a person. 
You are so stupid that you don't even realize when somebody is putting you on. 
That's what makes this so much fun and so entertaining. You feed it - and 
that's not a parody, but a fact. Almost everyone on this list seems to know 
this but you, so consider yourself punked, big time.

Don't confuse him, Richard. He'll think you mean he shouldn't do what I 
suggested.
 

 Buck, EditPad will also do the job, but if you have Windows, Notepad will do 
you fine for plain-text posts. Pasting text from the word processor into 
Notepad strips out any formatting it may have acquired in the word processor, 
and when you then paste it into Neo, it'll come out in sans-serif type (that's 
what all my posts are in). If you want anything in bold or italic, that's easy 
to do with the Rich Text editor in Neo. I make all my stuff bold because Neo's 
lightface sans-serif type is so light it can be hard to read.
 

 Mostly I type my posts directly into the text box, but for a very long post 
with interpolated responses, I'll use Notepad. I've never used a word processor 
to post anything in Neo.
 

 

 


 Don't do it Buck! 
 
 Don't ever copy and paste from a word processor into the Neo text box - if you 
do, your stuff will look like Judy's - all bold and messed up with a serif type 
face. You should always use a sans-serif type face, like Arial, when posting to 
the internet. And, reserve the use of bold for the really important stuff.
 
 Forget the Windows Notepad - it SUCKS compared to the free EditPad. If you 
really want to get serious about posting, get the Mozilla Thunderbird - it's 
free. Get away from NEO and Yahoo Mail. No serious professional uses Yahoo Mail 
anymore - Yahoo SUCKS!

been for years. If what Robin said was a parody, Judy seemed to miss it, since 
she failed to post a single comment about it after Robin left the group. What 
Judy doesn't realize is that she is the reason Robin left.
 

 Poor Ricky Retardo. The reason Robin left was because he had much more 
important things to do, things that would be far and away beyond your 
comprehension or your depth. I have this on the highest authority. Why not 
obsess on something else for a while? I know, why don't you and Sharon discuss 
what you talk about best - nothing.

the past (I don't follow your links), but to misremember is not to lie. A lie

distorts your ability to use words correctly, so you make false accusations. 
 
 There is no need to respond with links that prove what you are saying, 
because unlike you I have no interest in going back to the archives to check on 
something I may have said a long time ago. Who cares? Only you. The truth is 
that you are a malicious individual who has an obsessive need to brand people 
you do not like as liars. It is a very ugly trait, auth. Of course you are 
unable to see it for yourself, but again I ask you: Why do so many people on 
this forum despise you? Why are you always involved in arguments here in which 
everyone is a liar except you? The best thing you could do now would be to 
apologize for your insulting language toward me, but that would require a level

No, Richard, it's trolling and lying, not parody. You want it to be taken 
seriously. You want people to react. That's why you went so crazy when I 
started using that macro to shut you down. You kept having to think up new 
trolls, and finally you went over the edge.
 

 There have been many people who have taken you seriously, as you know. Michael 
did until I clued him in. Poor Share still does, to the point where she even 
tries to help you with your lies (with lies she picked up from Barry, 
ironically enough). But there really is no hope for Share. You should have some 
compassion for her cluelessness and not lead her on. She even took your post to 
Ann just now seriously.

You are so stupid that you don't even realize when somebody is putting you on.

Don't confuse him, Richard. He'll think you mean he shouldn't do what 
I suggested.



Buck, EditPad will also do the job, but if you have Windows, Notepad 
will do you fine for plain-text posts. Pasting text from the word 
processor into Notepad strips out any formatting it may have acquired 
in the word processor, and when you then paste it into Neo, it'll come 
out in sans-serif type (that's what all my posts are in). If you want 
anything in bold or italic, that's easy to do with the Rich Text 
editor in Neo. I make all my stuff bold because Neo's lightface 
sans-serif type is so light it can be hard to read.



Mostly I type my posts directly into the text box, but for a very long 
post with interpolated responses, I'll use Notepad. I've never used a 
word processor to post anything in Neo.







*Don't do it Buck! *

Don't ever copy and paste from a word processor into the Neo text box 
- if you do, your stuff will look like Judy's - all bold and messed up 
with a serif type face. You should always use a sans-serif type face, 
like Arial, when posting to the internet. And, reserve the use of bold 
for the really important stuff.


Forget the Windows Notepad - it SUCKS compared to the free EditPad. If 
you really want to get serious about posting, get the Mozilla 
Thunderbird - it's free. Get away from NEO and Yahoo Mail. No serious 
professional uses Yahoo Mail anymore - Yahoo SUCKS!

In the last few days something changed where word-processed writing 
gets mixed up upon pasting something that looks perfectly fine from 
OpenOfficeWriter in to the yahoo box for writing posts as reply.  And 
new topic posts too now. What a mess.


The reply box seems to open directly now in rich-text format but it 
seems to switch pastings over in to plain text as its neo-yahoo way 
of handling word processing from somewhere else.  Word processing 
elsewhere has always worked fine before until just recently.  Is 
Yahoo trying to reinvent the wheel or something with some brilliant 
rewriting of software?


I wish Yahoo would stop doing that.  And soon.  I got some really 
important things written already that I need to post.


This post is written straight in to the box, not word processed
