Esoterism

The Black Box, and the Esoteric, .. First some definitions – OX; – (Oxford-Definition) – Not required as that mess’s up the whole-thrust of the matter.

- Esoteric – pertaining to knowledge, not known by the masses.

- Analogy – occultism in action, lies on the fringes of poetry and religion, reasoning by analogy is its royal road.

Keep an open mind, and let the knowledge in, …
Be mindful of accepting opinions as fact, … (Do your own “fact-checking”)

REF: – Insert-here; – { Basic research principles / ideas } -

The Ten Questions; (Checking IF misinformation exists)

1. How reliable is the source of the claim?
2. Does the source make similar claims?
3. Have the claims been verified by somebody else?
4. Does this fit with the way the world works?
5. Has anyone tried to disprove the claim?
6. Where does the preponderance of evidence point?
7. Is the claimant playing by the rules of science?
8. Is the claimant providing positive evidence?
9. Does the new theory account for as many phenomena as the old theory?
10. Are personal beliefs driving the claim?

~ other words to explore/define ~

- Metaphors – LIKE analogy, but more imagery/trickery
- Meta-morphic – LIKE morphious, only with Dr Who conoctations
- Mixed-Metaphor – Use the Dumb as Door-knob -/- nails example
- Rhymes -
- Fairy tales for fragile minds
- Similies – LIKE stuff
- Esoterism – defined as a ‘doctrine, according to which knowledge cannot or must not be vulgarized, but only communicated to a few disciples’.

The central hypothesis of most occultists is that exoterism constitues a whole body of knowledge. ‘Traditional esoterism is at one and the same time doctrine and practise. It implies for the whole of the being, body, soul and spirit, a fundamentally different way of existance’. R. Abellio, La Fin de l’esoterisme (The End of Esoterism)

I like this-take on the topic of conspiracies, and ‘people that know’, (Are your ready? – here it is) -

The spying industry “attracts nutters”.
People such as this, like to think that “they know the truth” – therefore asserting that you don’t.

Thank you, Marion Maddox. This was an edifying and terrifying program. I wish I didn’t need to know – but the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Now I know why those saccharine-sweet girls at the garage sale I went to a couple of weekends ago weren’t responding to my raunchy old woman humour; they simply didn’t have a category for me.

Favourite Character – Dennis the peasant

Dennis was right - The form of government advocated by “Dennis the Peasant” in the famous Monty Python Movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” – (Who ever wrote this, .. Thankyou)

“I told you, we’re an anarco-sydicalist commune. We take it in turns to be a sort of executive officer for the week…”

GOOGLED – government idiots – isn’t defined yet, but these are close – Defining government idiots is really difficult. There is so much incompetance that it is plain to me that nobody in government can make decisions without a committee of consults providing $$$-advice-$$$ and $$$-reports-$$$, and, .. (Ranting? stop now)

GOOGLED – educated-idiots – Another little term to google – (Damn shame this url is no longer up) – http://biggovernment.com/tag/educated-idiots/ – The title sums up everything without long winded explainations.

THE COMMENT – (That spurred this post) here >>> http://grd.net.au/blog/?p=845&cpage=1#comment-586 <<<

Friday 12, 2010 – The group, Anonymous, blocked the main government website www.australia.gov.au and www.aph.gov.au, the Australian parliament’s homepage, for a second day running in protest over controversial plans to filter the internet.

Codenamed “Operation: Titstorm”, the hacking campaign involves hundreds of people from around the world and used a technique called Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) to jam web traffic, one of the protesters said.

The main-stream media (TV) – is not reporting on this much (Or, I have stopped watching), and so, ..  ANY good ‘Internet-Search’ reveals a wealth of information on these topics).  – I hope to follow up soon on this topic, from the technical angle, without the political-hype, lies, and deception provided by bias reporters, and hence provide my-own biased opinion.

AND – Google; Operation Tits storm

TED – 4chan’s moot takes pro-anonymity to TED 2010

In the closing minutes, moot’s purpose for speaking became clear: he insisted that anonymity is a good thing, yet we’re all giving it up voluntarily. He wasn’t talking about the NSA or tech policy or anything like that. Rather, he said sites like 4chan may go the way of the dinosaur because people are choosing to join social networking sites and persistent identity services. One of the ‘Net’s greatest strengths is disappearing as a result, but moot claimed that sites like 4chan show that a lot of good can come of anonymity, too. He seemed puzzled as to why everyone wants their identity tied to so much of what they say and do online. Do people hold back? Do they censor themselves? The power of being able to say or post whatever you want is undeniably strong, but moot didn’t speak to the dangers of anonymity.

FINALLY; – (I found these two comments – to be accurate and insightful ~ From URL; http://www.news.com.au/technology/anonymous-hackers-threaten-to-shut-down-australian-government-websites-for-months/story-e6frfro0-1225829536342

Why do people keep saying it’s a child porn filter?? Conroy wants to censor sites like youtube for goodness sakes. it’s about banning anything and everything he doesn’t like not just child porn.

This just demonstrates how underprepared the government is to make sweeping changes to internet access. I predicted cyber attacks in response to the filter months ago, I can’t believe the government are so naive, and to now see them flailing around helpless against simple DDOS attacks is pathetic. This internet filter issue is waking a sleeping giant, DDOS is surely just the tip of the iceberg. The underground community have more resources and are more organised than what people give them credit for. How can they seriously complain about these attacks not being a legitimate form of political protest, when they are pushing this filter ahead without any public consultation in the first place? What goes around comes around.

positive self-deception

The following is from url ~ ‘Damn_Interesting.com’ (<<< Follow this LINK to read the complete article >>>)

In 1988, psychologists Shelly Taylor and Jonathon Brown published an article making the somewhat disturbing claim that positive self-deception is a normal and beneficial part of most people’s everyday outlook. They suggested that average people hold cognitive biases in three key areas:

  • a) viewing themselves in unrealistically positive terms;
  • b) believing they have more control over their environment than they actually do; and
  • c) holding views about the future that are more positive than the evidence can justify.

The typical person, it seems, depends on these happy delusions for the self-esteem needed to function through a normal day. It’s when the fantasies start to unravel that problems arise.

BS Detection Kits

The Baloney Detection Kit;
With a sea of information coming at us from all directions, how do we sift out the misinformation and bogus claims, and get to the truth? Michael Shermer, Publisher of Skeptic magazine, lays out a “Baloney Detection Kit” — ten questions we should ask when encountering a claim.

The Ten Questions;

1. How reliable is the source of the claim?
2. Does the source make similar claims?
3. Have the claims been verified by somebody else?
4. Does this fit with the way the world works?
5. Has anyone tried to disprove the claim?
6. Where does the preponderance of evidence point?
7. Is the claimant playing by the rules of science?
8. Is the claimant providing positive evidence?
9. Does the new theory account for as many phenomena as the old theory?
10. Are personal beliefs driving the claim?

OTHER BS Detection Kits;In the age of the internet, completely incorrect information based on nothing more than somebody’s desire to sell you something is everywhere.
