Intro and Out Song, The Syntax of Psychedelic Time feat. Terence McKenna
Life lived in the absence of the psychedelic experience that primordial shamanism
is based on is life trivialized, life denied, life enslaved to the ego.
In keeping of my current vibe and theme of my awareness let's take a look at The Yage Letters.
William Burroughs’ Junkie ended with Yage may be the final fix. In letters to Allen Ginsberg, a young poet in New York at the time, recorded his journey to the Amazon jungle, detailing vividly incidents of a search for Yagé — the common name for Ayahuasca, or Banisteripsis Caape — the fabled “soul-rebooting” hallucinogen of the Amazon region treated as a traditional spiritual medicine and usually consumed in shaman-led ceremonies. Author and recipient of these letters met again in New York, Christmas 1953, and edited the writings to form this single book, The Yage Letters. The correspondence contains the first seeds of the later Burroughs' bizarre fantasy style in Naked Lunch.
In this Psychedelic Sunday video, I use excerpts from the documentary, which is narrated by Burroughs himself — likely directed by Rodrigo Salomon, director of the Salomon Arts gallery — the story of a curandero on the Putumayo River in Colombia. Also, audio of Ginsberg reading a letter from Burroughs that was added later in the Redux Edition of Yage Letters and Ayahuasqueros sings an Icaros.
Brion Gysin Explains The Cut-Up Method and then I have fun Cut-Up his and William S Burroughs Words and Images.
Poets are supposed to liberate the words
Poets are meant to sing and make words sings
No poets don't own words
I've come to free the words

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge asked Douglas Rushkoff on Team Human, 'So what's happening then, come on you tell me what's going on?'. Rushkoff Talks about what's going on right now with the collapse of the narrative, toll this digital age is taking on us and the reversal of our institutions.
And in this part of the discussion, Gen's brings up this is why we still think the cut-up is such a powerful tool and it is that moment I knew I would have to cut up that audio and play around with it and see what happens. This is that edit.
In order to Confuse the Algorithms,
just do strange things, do random things.
Find the others and create the weird.
We will need everyone going random.
Cut Up Utopism and see what visions leak out.

Whos down for some Infinite Imaginarium Collaborative Games? The Idea is this: pick out a 'Dead' Spoken Word Poem that you have. I will edit them with some background music and some visuals put them together, and have A Infinite Imaginarium Production. Infinite Imaginarium as a general principle works under creative commons ethos, just be mindful of any poems submitted will be considered creative commons unless otherwise notified.
A 'Dead' spoken word is an old or never finished poem, this is the time to raise them from the ether. Note: the poem can also be alive, meaning new. The whole 'Dead' thing is just a fun play on Dead Poets Society.
Please Comment Below to have a more in-depth discussion about this project. Also feel free to email: [email protected]
When the old story dies, there is a crisis.
It is time for Transformation.
The Death of The Narrative brings
confusion, chaos, and struggle.
There are moments in Consciousness
when things become fluid.
When Patterns change and in these moments,
the ripple of even a single idea can make a huge difference.
Change the whole wave of consciousness, evolve the reality.
Love is the felt
experience of another
Consciousness connects all
being and non-being,
space, time and matter
Chaos and Transformation
A monologue from Douglas Rushkoff of Team Human, on how the dynamics of cult thinking might help us understand the seemingly irrational commitment to Trump by his supporters.
First, a disclaimer: This piece is not about politics but the deeper motivations of the Trump constituency, how they are reinforced, and how they reflect the higher, almost spiritual ideals informing nearly a third of Americans right now. Further, Trump is hardly the only politician to have exploited the dynamics of cults; the Clintons and Obamas also leveraged the cultish devotion of their followers.
"But Trump’s particularly loyal core constituency — his ability to joke that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose the support of his base, or to convince surrogates to endorse an ever-changing assortment of conflicting facts — suggests a more intense, cultish loyalty than we have seen before. Even Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) has begun to use the word “cultish” in describing the GOP leadership’s fear of contradicting the president. And the boldness with which Trump scolds his detractors — especially those in his own administration — closely tracks with the behavior of those who use their charismatic power to control others.
The parallels to the cult of Trump are obvious."
A full transcript of the essay that inspired this talk can be found on Rushkoff’s Medium page. https://medium.com/s/greatescape/the-trump-cult-73b6a0efd0ee

Checking into Team Human Last Night, Douglas Rushkoff recited an open letter and offer of service to Google. In wake of the recent news that Google employees refused to build a censored search for China, what better opportunity to reevaluate its total mission and practice? Why not bring Team Human on board for guidance?
GOOGLE EMPLOYEES ARE demanding answers from the company’s leadership amid growing internal protests over plans to launch a censored search engine in China.
Employee's inside the internet giant’s offices have agreed that the censorship project raises “urgent moral and ethical issues” and have circulated a letter saying so, calling on bosses to disclose more about the company’s work in China.
The letter says: “Currently we do not have the information required to make ethically-informed decisions about our work, our projects, and our employment. That the decision to build Dragonfly was made in secret and progressed with the [artificial intelligence] Principles in place, makes clear that the Principles alone are not enough. We urgently need more transparency, a seat at the table, and a commitment to clear and open processes: Google employees need to know what we’re building.”
GOOGLE STAFF TELL BOSSES CHINA CENSORSHIP IS “MORAL AND ETHICAL” CRISIS: https://theintercept.com/2018/08/16/google-china-crisis-staff-dragonfly/
This is the full poetic expression of a special team-up between SeekGnosis and SatoriD.
It's been a minute and I note, that I haven't left a quote.
Yet the fire is being stoked, by the division of our votes.
Has self determination become a joke?
Or has anyone deprived us of our thoughts & our hopes?
Different opinions rise from the sound of the crowd.
If we listen, we can harmonize & allow a coexistence.
One derived of the people's persistence & invent, a global wave that defines our very existence.
Then witness the way that all life gains momentum.
I question, why would you want to be surrounded by people who teach the same lesson?
My impression, is that we need a wide selection, of opinions & minds that leave a lasting impression.
Progression, is often lead by the ones who thrive to seek answers to all of their questions.
Not to mention, the effect they have in the field of inventions.
Take these words as my intentions & with them I send my blessings.

Satorid singing the sacred songs of consciousness
O, what a world of unseen visions and heard silences, this insubstantial country of the mind! What ineffable essences, these touchless rememberings and unshowable reveries! And the privacy of it all! A secret theater of speechless monologue and prevenient counsel, an invisible mansion of all moods, musings, and mysteries, an infinite resort of disappointments and discoveries. A whole kingdom where each of us reigns reclusively alone, questioning what we will, commanding what we can. A hidden hermitage where we may study out the troubled book of what we have done and yet may do. An introcosm that is more myself than anything I can find in a mirror. This consciousness that is myself of selves, that is everything, and yet is nothing at all - what is it?
And where did it come from?
"In wildness is the preservation of the world" -Henry Thoreau
to gain a perfect view
one must be still, listening
to the timeless songs
Stop the silly chatter of the mind, retune your awareness, use your intuition on Nature's way, feel your deeper sense of belonging. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fibre is dancing to the heart strings of the wind, while the incense is ever flowing from the pines and wildflowers. The First Temples were the mountains, hills and grooves. Where man sat in wonder, got taught the lessons of life and found nourishment.

Our evolution begins beyond the mind/body & space/time
It isn’t waiting anymore
Our evolution does not need approval or permission
It happens because it is happening in each being, neighborhood, village, city or town
at gatherings of tribes, fellow hackers, dreamers & tricksters
people at the market, on the bus
It is gradual and soft
It is spontaneous and loud
It is happening already
It is found in your computer, your phone, your gut, your legs, your multiplying cells
in the naked mouth of taut nipples and overflowing passion
Our evolution is swelling from the insatiable drumming of eternity
Our evolution is the heartbeat of the universe
Our evolution is the spark of life itself
Our evolution is willing to give everything for this
Our evolution is overthrowing the state of bliss
Of beauty so intense that no one, and i mean no one has the guts to name it
Our evolution will not be choreographed although it begins with a few familiar steps.
We let chaos take the lead, so that we can dance to the songs of eternity
Our evolution is not violent but it does not shy away from the dangerous edges where fierce displays of chaos tumbles into something new and beautiful
Our evolution is in this body,
In this mind, in this moment, in the eternal now
In these lips of bliss’ last kiss
In this endless sound of the dreamtime
Our evolution is
Connection not consumption
Passion not profit
Orgasm not ownership
Our evolution is of Gaia and her emissary ayahuasca
We come from her
For her, because of her
It understands that every time we frack or drill
Or burn or violate the layers of her sacredness
we violate the soul of our future
Our evolution is not ashamed to press our body down
On her mud floor in front
Banyan, Cypress, Pine, Kalyan, Oak, Chestnut, Mulberry
Redwood, Sycamore trees
To bow shamelessly to shocking yellow birds and rose blue setting skies, heart exploding purple bougainvillea and aqua sea
Our evolution gladly kisses the feet of mothers and nurses and servers and cle..

so that I am in control
and not some unconscious tape-loop
I burn deeply for those connections
I work hard for those connections
breaking open my mind
trying to find the source code
mental programs running out of control

Downbeats with Uncle Bob, is a video I ever made from Robert Anton Wilson spittin some truth! "We have a government of the corporations, by corporations, for corporations" Enjoy this old gem.
Teonanácatl: Flesh of the Gods. Despite the historical evidence of psychoactive mushrooms being used in Mexico, the idea was discouraged by William Safford – a leading botanist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture -who insisted that teonanácatl referred to peyote. He claimed that the Indians were trying to mislead the Catholic Church so they could consume their sacramental peyote in secret. Safford also cast doubt on the botanical knowledge of the Aztecs as well as the early Spanish chroniclers.
Schultes was skeptical of Safford’s theory. There was little resemblance between the peyote cactus and the fungi; furthermore, the Harvard ethnobotanist knew that peyote was a plant of the northern deserts rather than the tropical regions of southern Mexico. In an adroit bit of ethnobotanical detective work, Schultes located a letter addressed to the herbarium Director J.N. Rose from an Austrian-born national in Mexico named Blas Pablo Reko. Writing from Guadalajara, Reko stated that Safford was mistaken and that teonanácatl was a magic mushroom celebrated and consumed by the Mazatec Indians in the state of Oaxaca. In 1936, Schultes headed to Oaxaca to investigate.
Schultes met up with Blas Pablo Reko in Huautla, the capital of Mazatec country, and searched for a local shopkeeper who was said to have firsthand knowledge of the mushroom cults. They explored around Huautla and the nearby city of San Antonio Eloxochitlán with little success. There were rumors of mushroom cults, but Schultes and Reko were unable to find definitive proof.
One day, as Schultes was drying plants in town, a middle-aged Mazatec man named Dorantes brought him a dozen fresh mushrooms, referring to them as los niños santos (the “sacred children”). Dorantes handed Schultes an assortment of mushrooms, and within the handful Schultes identified a species of Panaeolus (later named Panaeolus campanulatus var. sphinctrinus) and Psilocybe cubensis. This was the first identifiable botanical collection of teonanácatl.
A later analysis by Schultes’ colleague Albert Hofmann of Sandoz Labs – who later became famous as the creator of LSD - eventually extracted compounds from these mushrooms that would lead to the creation of the first beta blocker cardiac drugs."
your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
-- by Charles Bukowski
Terence Mckenna talks about how the idea of the beautiful has always served him best. Allen Ginsberg Howls and sings a song And Satorid mixes in some of his favorite choice words:
"Beauty is beauty, that’s all there is to it. If you are interested in you, then you’re stuck with you and you’re stuck with your death. But if you get interested in beauty, then you’ve latched on to something mysterious inside your soul that grows like a secret insane thought, and takes over completely when you die, and you’re IT. A shuddery situation—it’s hard to let go your selfhood and have a good time with beauty—we’re brought up to scheme and battle to make it here and now with gold, lovers, power, clothes, and face that anyone from our mother to the next door neighbor cop can see and respect."
Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac is a book that changed my life, it was like a bolt of lightning that hit me straight in the spinal cord and all of sudden I glimpsed the golden eternity, just for a brief moment I understand IT, the big IT, the IT to end all ITS, and as I closed the pages of the book. It wall faded away...
Enjoy this spoken word, blues beat video I made.
“Down on the lake rosy reflections of celestial vapor appeared, and I said, "God, I love you" and looked to the sky and really meant it. "I have fallen in love with you, God. Take care of us all, one way or the other." To the children and the innocent it's all the same.”

the main thing in the universe is nameless, so I give it the name beauty. And beauty is beauty, that's all there is to it. Now if your only interested in yourself, then you're stuck with yourself, and stuck with your death. But if you get interested in beauty, well then you have latched on to something mysterious deep inside your soul, that grows and grows, like a secret insane thought, until your it....
