The Universe - Alien Galaxies

Communion trailer (1989)

Communion is a 1989 Science Fiction drama/thriller film based on the book of the same name by Whitley Strieber. Starring Christopher Walken and Frances Sternhagen, it tells a story of a family that experiences the extraterrestrial phenomenon while on vacation at a remote vacation home in the wilderness during of which the father is abducted and all of thier lives change. According to Strieber, the story is a real-life account of his own encounter with "visitors", with Walken playing the role of the author. The score was composed by Eric Clapton. It received a mostly negative critical reaction due to Walken's performance and was panned by Strieber himself due to its non-factual portrayal of him. He said that while his experience was a dream and on his own, the film showed it as actually happening and his entire family experiencing it. 
(The film was also a box office failure.)

Interview w/ Robert Anton Wilson -- Is There Reason For Optimism?

>The following is a fascinating interview with Robert Anton Wilson appearing in "Common Ground" Vancouver, July 1999 Issue.

>TELL US about your career, interests and accomplishments?
>If you think surviving 67 years on a brutal, backward and superstitious planet ranks as an accomplishment, I've done that.
>My interests include Jungian psychology, Reichian bio-psychology, Leary's neuro-psychology, general semantics, quantum mechanics, synergetic geometry, Crowley's magick, neurolinguistic programming, ethnomethodology, movies in general and especially the films of Orson Welles and Clint Eastwood, Buddhism (Zen, Tibetan and Shinran flavors included), "Finnegans Wake" by James Joyce, the "Cantos" of Ezra Pound, Andy Warhol, Elmyr de Hory, the Three Stooges (especially Moe Howard), the obsessive rituals of serial killers and the similar but contrasting rituals of the State in re: capital punishment, whether or not God has a willy (theogenderology), how many planets with intelligent life-forms have received by now the first broadcasts of "I Love Lucy" transmitted in the 1950s, and a lot of other weird stuff. Maybe I did too much acid in the '60s.

>WHAT PROJECTS are you working on?
>I've gotten started on a new book, "The Tale of the Tribe," about the influence of anthropology on Joyce and Pound, and their influence on Internet (via Marshall McLuhan. who got his whole "global village" scenario out of "Finnegans Wake" and the "Cantos," and always said so.)
>I've also started tinkering with an old and unsatisfactory book of mine called "PLAYBOY's Book of Forbidden Words." My first and worst book; worst, after the editors at Playboy Press did to my manuscript what the Roman Army did to the Sabine women. And I didn't fight back enough because of my ignorance and inexperience. Now I'm doing the book the way I wanted it to come out the first time. I now call it "Robert Anton Wilson's Book of Black Magick and Curses" and it will include all the anthropological and neurolinguistic theorems that Playboy excised. The language of obscenity and scatology, with all its poetry and pain, its bitter wit and its witchcraft, has never had as much study as it deserves. Great artists in that area of Big Taboo--artists like Swift, Rabelais, Joyce, George Carlin etc. -- tell us more about ourselves than a googolplex of books on social science.

>WHAT BOOKS have influenced your life and what books are you reading now?
>I think movies have influenced me more than books, especially movies like F For Fake, The Trial, Chimes at Midnight, Touch of Evil, High Plains Drifter, Honky Tonk Man, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Citizen Kane, Bird, Intolerance, A Perfect World, and, of course, The Silence of the Lambs. I do like a lot of books, too, especially those by Joyce, Pound, Faulkner, Mencken, Mark Twain, Jonathan Swift and those two Class Acts from the pulps, Raymond Chandler and H P Lovecraft.
>I've just finished reading "Hannibal" by Thomas Harris and "The General's Daughter" by Nelson deMille, and I'm in the middle of my bi-annual re-reading of Pound's "Cantos." Hannibal Lecter seems to me the greatest villain in the history of crime fiction. By comparison, Professor Moriarty looks like cardboard cutout. Moriarty just became a criminal out of greed, and used his mathematical genius to create puzzles nobody could solve -- except Sherlock Holmes, of course. Dr. Lecter has much more interesting (and esoteric) motives, and his genius comes across a hell of a lot more convincingly than Moriarty's. Doyle only tells you that Moriarty "is" a genius, and we're supposed to take that on faith. Dr. Lecter talks like a genius, and acts like one, too.

>WHAT IS YOUR most serious concern about the planet?
>The Stupidity Problem. As J.R. "Bob" Dobbs has said, "You know how dumb the average guy is, right? Well, mathematically, by definition, half of them are even dumber than that." My favorite philosopher, George Carlin, points out that if you doubt that, take along a pad every time you go out and make a note whenever you see or hear something incredibly stupid. At the end of an average day, you'll have at least 40 notes. And that's even if you don't go into a church or political meeting. We live, potentially, amid Utopian abundance, which remains invisible to most of us because of the Four Blockages named by R. Buckminster Fuller-- "ignorance, fear, greed and zoning laws." I regard ignorance as the prime evil, the source of all the fear, the greed and the zoning laws. We need a pill to make everybody smarter. I guess such a magic potion would also make them happier, healthier, funnier, sexier and less easy to govern. Maybe those last two aspects of the Brain Booster makes the Establishment nervous about it and that's why it hasn't appeared on the market yet. (I hear rumors that such a Head Expander had appeared once, back in the '60s, and quickly got suppressed, but that sounds like just another paranoid rumor. Doesn't it?)

>WHAT DO YOU foresee for the future of the planet and its people? Is there reason for optimism?
>I suspect or intuit that, as Lenin said, "the machine is running the engineers." We can't dismount, even if the horse seems to have gotten out of control. Information will continue to double faster all the time, leading to new technologies, and the new technologies will unleash Chaos (in the mathematical sense), and society will change in unpredictable and unexpected ways. I suspect or intuit that this ever-accelerating info-techno-sociological rev-and-ev-olution follows the laws of organic systems and continually re-organizes on higher and higher levels of coherence, until something kills it.
>Since gene-pools last much, much longer than biological units, or persons, I assume gene-pools have higher intelligence than the isolated units. Since species last longer than their sub-divided gene-pools, I assume that a species has a higher intelligence than any gene-pool within it. And since Gaia or the Big Computer or whatever you want to call the total Terran Geo-bio-mass has lasted billions of years --despite floods and earthquakes and meteors and massive extinctions and Ice Ages -- I assume it has more smarts than any sub-sets like kingdoms, families, genera, gene-pools, etc.
>The reason for optimism lies in the biological fact that it keeps you happy and busy, whereas pessimism just leads to lying around and bitching. I'd rather keep happy and busy than lie around bitching, but I know this will not convince those who really like lying around and bitching. As Nietzsche said that optimism and good health always go together, and so do pessimism and morbidity, in the medical sense of the word.

>COULD YOU speak about aliens on the planet?
>I don't do well speaking about things I don't know anything about, so I'll speak instead about the Unknown and the Inexplicable. I find them inexhaustibly entertaining as objects of speculation, since they obviously include a lot more than the known and the explicated. I suspect and almost believe that the Unknown and Inexplicable played a role in the design of the DNA molecule, as suggested by Sir Francis Crick, Sir Fred Hoyle, Dr. Timothy Leary and others. I also suspect that the Unknown has meddled a lot in human affairs, and the Inexplicable has laid hands, or tentacles, or something, on us many times.
>As Thomas Huxley said, the universe acts a lot like a chess game in which the player on the other side remains invisible to us. By analyzing the moves, we try to form an image of the intellect behind them. Images that have seemed almost believable to me at various times have included the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece (if you develop a Classic Poetry habit, that kind of neurolinguistic programming can happen...) and also, of course, those extra-terrestrials who have so much popularity these days. I have also considered the player on the other side as more impersonal, like the Tao, or more bizarre, like Shiva Dancing, or more abstract, like Philip K. Dick's Vast Active Living Information System (VALIS.) Mostly, though I think of the player on the other side as a pookah -- a resident of Ireland, in rabbit form, who may at any time dump a truckload of the Unknown and Inexplicable right on your doorstep.

Alan Moore - Who am I ? excerpt

has become fashionable, and it is nothing more than a fashion, to believe that the universe is dumb, stupid. That intelligence, values, love and fine feelings reside only within the bag of the human epidermis, and that outside that, the thing is simply a kind of a chaotic, stupid interaction of blind forces, and our intelligence is an unfortunate accident. By some weird freak of evolution we came to be these feeling and rational beings, more or less rational, and this is a ghastly mistake because here we are in a universe that has nothing in common with us, that doesn't share our feelings, has no real interest in us: we're just a sort of cosmic fluke. And therefore, the only hope for mankind is to beat this irrational universe into submission, and conquer it and master it. Now all this is perfectly idiotic. If you would think that the idea of the universe as being the creation of a benevolent old gentleman, although he's not so benevolent - he takes a sort of "this hurts me more than it's going to hurt you" sort of attitude to things, you can have that on one hand, and if that becomes uncomfortable you can exchange it for its opposite: the idea that the ultimate reality doesn't have any intelligence at all. At least that gets rid of the old bogey in the sky - in exchange for a picture of the world that is completely stupid.
Now these ideas don't make any sense, because you cannot get an intelligent organism such as a human being out of an unintelligent universe. The saying in the New Testament that figs do not grow on thistles nor grapes on thorns applies equally to the world. You do not find an intelligent organism living in an unintelligent environment.
Look, here is a tree in the garden, and every summer it produces apples, and we call it an apple tree because the tree apples, that's what it does. Alright, now here is a solar system inside a galaxy and one of the peculiarities of this solar system is that at least on the planet Earth the thing peoples. In just the same way that an apple tree apples.
Now maybe, two million years ago somebody came from another galaxy in a flying saucer and had a look at this solar system, and they looked it over and shrugged their shoulders and said, "just a bunch of rocks," and they went away. Later on, maybe two million years later they came around and they looked at it again, and they said, "Excuse me, we thought it was a bunch of rocks, but it's peopling, and it's alive after all. It's done something intelligent."
Because, you see, we grow out of this world in exactly the same way that the apples grow on the apple tree. If evolution means anything it means that, and this is discovered by the scientist when he tries to describe .. exactly what you do. He finds out that you, your behavior, is not something that can be separated from the behavior of the world around you. He realized then that you are something that the whole world is doing. Just as when the sea has waves on it. Alright, the sea, the ocean is waving, and so each one of us is a waving of the whole cosmos, the entire works, ALL THERE IS! And with each one of us it's waving and saying, "Yoo hoo - Here I am!" Only it does it differently each time, because variety is the spice of life.
Alan Watts - from the lecture "Who Am I?"

Robert Anton Wilson I am Awake

I think the major struggle that is going on is the struggle bewteen those who want to program everybody else and those of us who would prefer to be self programmers and as far as possible teach others to be self programmers too. Because self programmers are more cheerful and happy where its nice living in a happy world herbert spencer said it then i ever have he said: nobody can be perfectly happy until everybody is happy And that seems so trancendentilly obvious to me that most people dont have a clue yet about that As you turn on higher and higher circuits you become more sensitive too that what is going on , you more and more want to release the people from their misery. Well you know I dont want to sound pretentious about it , but you know, like the buddha he realised what was going on in his life he wanted to liberate as many as people as possible from the traps they were in and teach techniques that would work. When people think of the buddhism like its a religion like christianity but they understand it is, in a sense but, in another sense it is better to think of it as a series of psychological games to release yourself from your compulsions
 interviewer: Ye, Buddha never claimed to be a deity of any kind 
 raw: there is one ancient buddha scripture in wich he directly ask : Are you a god?
 And he says: NO and the next question is are you a saint: NO 
and the next question is then what are you? and he says: I AM AWAKE!

Eight Kinds of Libertarians

[This article, from Robert Anton Wilson's "Illuminating Discords" column in New Libertarian Weekly, was published in issue no. 60 of that publication, Feb. 6, 1977. My thanks to Mike Gathers for supplying me with the clip, and to Jesse Walker, who supplied the article to Mr. Gathers. The sequel to this piece will run tomorrow. -- Tom]

I propose that there are eight kinds of libertarians and that understanding the differences would clarify much of the debate between factions.

The Biosurvival Circuit is activated as soon as DNA life is established on a planet. This is the most primitive level of consciousness (3 1/2 billion years old) and scans only for signals indicating safety (security, warmth, food) or danger (threat, isolation, withdrawal of nurture). This circuit is recapitulated in the first days of infancy and takes a basic biosurvival imprint which lasts for life. In ordinary nontechnical language this circuit is called Will.

The libertarian who has taken his heaviest imprint on this circuit will be obsessed with defense-and-attack on the most basic level of life-and-death struggle against competing organisms. Anarcho-fascists, Sadeans, Stirnerites and vulgarizers of Nietzsche fit this first circuit imprint pattern.

2. The Emotional Circuit is formed as soon as life forms become complicated enough to exert effort against gravity, rear up and compete for territory or status. This appeared with the first amphibians around 500,000,000 years ago. This circuit is recapitulated when the infant starts to walk, send emotional signals by Body Language (kinesics) and struggles for a decision-making role in family politics. (All parents know this imprint period as "the difficult years.") Once again, the initial imprint tends to remain a lifelong emotional game strategy.

In ordinary language, this circuit, pre-occupied with mammalian politics, is called the Ego. Its unconscious aspects are the Id of Freud; Berne calls is the Adapted Child.

Libertarians who have taken their strongest imprint on this circuit will tend toward conservatism, join the Libertarian Party and get embroiled in elections, or become Objectivists.

The first circuit is obsessed with survival in a Darwinian sense; the second circuit with territory and status, i.e. Ego-tripping.

3. The third circuit appeared with the emergence of hominid nervous systems about 1,000,000 years ago. Right-handedness, domination of the brain by the linear left hemisphere and the use of the nine laryngeal muscles for signaling concrete and abstract ideas (language) make up this Symbolic Circuit. It is activated when the child begins handling, manipulating and altering artifacts, and also asking questions such as, "What is this called? How do you use this?"

In popular speech, this circuit is called the Mind. Eric Berne calls it the Adult or Computer.

(In Star Trek land, the first circuit is Scotty, brooding pessimistically over life-support and weapons systems; the second circuit is McCoy, the expert on tribal decorum; and the third circuit, of course, is Spock.)

Libertarians who take their strongest imprint on the third circuit remain obsessed with logic, linear processes, symbolic constructs, science. Typical examples are Bucky Fuller, the semanticist Korzykski, John Stuart Mill. These types never get involved in politics and tend to regard second circuit politics as sub-human.

The transition from the mammalian second circuit to the hominid third circuit is beautifully portrayed in 2001, when Moon-Watcher picks up the bone and realizes he can use it as a tool. The quick transitions from the bone flying through the air to the L5 space colony illustrates the extreme rapidity of change on any planet after the third circuit begins operating.

We have said that life and the first circuit is 3 1/2 billion years old and the hominid third circuit only one million, but these figures are too large to feel. Try it this way: divide by 10 million and make a model by which this planet is only 100 years old, and begin in 1576. Then, life and the first circuit began around 1626. The emotional circuit appeared with vertebrate life about 1926. The hominid third circuit appeared one month ago, and modern science ten minutes ago.

This rapid acceleration after third circuit symbolism appears was called time-binding by Korzybski.

4. The Domestic Circuit appeared with the domestication of humanity about 30,000 years ago. (On our 400-year model scale, that would be about 16 hours ago.) This circuit imprints the sexual apparatus for socially useful purposes. (For further details on this domestication process, see Marcuse, Eros and Civilization, and Wilhelm Reich, passim.) This is recapitulated in each individual when the chemical releasers of pubescence activate the sex-mating drives, and imprinting this energy with the local taboo system creates the Adult Personality, (Freud's Super-Ego, Berne's Parent.)

Since this circuit consists of taboo systems sublimated out of powerful erotic energies, the fourth-circuit libertarian is a driven and compulsive Super-Ego figure. ("He's making a list and checking it twice. He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice.") Utopian, psychologically authoritarian and always convinced SHe is the one mature personality in any group, this type appears both in the camp of fanatic militarism and fanatic pacifism; e.g. Heinlein and Joan Baez both seem to be fourth circuit libertarianism.

(Very few fourth circuit types become libertarians actually, and Maoism is the ultimate fourth circuit domestication. On the Enterprise, Kirk is the fourth circuit type.)

5. The fifth neurological circuit, according to Leary's Exo-Psychology, is for extraterrestrial life and, hence, has only appeared in random mutants until recently. It is the Neurosomatic Circuit and mediates biosurvival in zero-gravity. 85 percent of all astronauts have described "mystical" experiences which are actually fifth circuit "highs" similar to the dhyana state in Hatha Yoga or the Turn On you get from neurotransmitters in the cannabis family. Freud called this circuit "the oceanic experience."

Neurosomatic rapture transcends the dualisms of the first four circuits, reverses figure and ground (often in humorous ways) and is appropriately called spacing or floating in popular speech.

Sex and dope cults such as Tantra in India, the Yezidis in the Near East, the Gnostic and Illuminati heresies in Europe, hippiedom, etc., represents fifth circuit libertarianism. "You can't do good until you feel good" (Leary's translation of Lao-Tse) is their basic motto. They are detached from, and amused by, the dualisms of the first four circuits -- the forward-back of biosurvival fight-or-flight patterns, the up-down of emotional politics, the either-or of symbolic logic, the naughty or nice of local taboo systems.

6. The sixth circuit is Neuroelectrical or psionic intelligence: direct awareness and control of Brain functioning. In premature infants, this produces space-time singularities, synchronicities, ESP, and a sense that one is living in a sci-fi story of parallel worlds.

Since this circuit is the point at which brain functioning moves more into the right lobe than the left, its purpose has to do with our future evolution and sixth circuit libertarians are extremely rare thus far; one is more likely to encounter them in fiction than in fact. Conchis, in John Fowles' The Magus, is one example; Hagbard Celine, another. Krishnamurti's slogan, "Be an Individual," is in Krishnamurti's context, a sixth circuit libertarian exhortation. Crowley's notorious saying, "God is the enemy of Man" is another sixth circuit signal, as was Proudhon's antitheism (as distinguished from atheism.)

7. The Neurogenetic Circuit involves direct access to the DNA archives: Jung's "collective unconscious" made conscious. The seventh circuit libertarian is an Evolutionary Agent, a conspirator in the vast DNA plot to achieve Higher Intelligence, Immortality, Supreme Bliss and the gratification of all desires.

When Leary was operating on the sixth circuit, he said, "The body is the car; the DNA is the driver." When he graduated to the seventh circuit, he said, "The nervous system is the car; the DNA is the driver." Again, the type is so rare that the prototypes are found more in fiction than in life -- all of Kazansakis's heroes, especially Odysseus in his sequel to the Odyssey; Prometheus and Daedalus in mythology; Gilgamesh renouncing kingship and all the world to search for immortality; Buddha renouncing all to see Truth.

A classic seventh circuit libertarian is Giordano Bruno, burned by the Catholic Church in February 1600, but the pioneer of modern science and modern Western occultism. (See Frances Yates, Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition.) A more modern example is Wilhelm Reich, before he wigged out.

8. Thae highest circuit is Metaphysiological (not metaphysical). This is evolving toward synergetic interlock of galactic higher intelligences into one unified energy field free of body container. (The "Atman" or "Overmind" of mystical literature.) Metaphysiological is out-of-the body, out of space-time, literally infinite.

The formula for opening the 8th circuit is SMI2LE, which means Space Migration + Intelligence (squared) + Life Extension. Space Migration and Life Extension are clear enough, I trust, but Intelligence Squared perhaps requires a word of clarification. It means intelligence-studying-intelligence, i.e. Dr. John Lilly's self-metaprogramming biocomputer.

All of the 8th circuit libertarians known to me are unindicted co-conspirators in Leary's Starseed project, which aims to accomplish the SMI2LE mutation in this generation.
