Positive Book Review – His Master’s Voice by Stanislaw Lem

His Master’s Voice (science fiction) was one of the three books (other two were non-fiction and highly recommended – Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss and Drive by Daniel Pink) I had selected for bedtime reading as the clock winds down to the new year and must confess, Stanislaw Lem is the name I missed out coming of age, as a fan of hard science fiction! This story easily o’er-leaps the credibility meter (as is wont of any good science fiction writer) but surprisingly, turns into critical non-fiction and although the story isn’t big, it isn’t what one can read in a go (see Amazon reviews).

I was drawn to it by this post on good holiday books for tech pros (second in the list) and indeed what starts as an attempt to decode a neutrino signal by a cross-section of scientists becomes an impossible Rorschach test not only for mankind but possibly for conscious life that may arise in the universe.

The irony is the very act of trying to understand that message can itself lead a civilization towards new technology and scientific discovery if not sweeping socioeconomic and cultural changes yet one can never ascertain the fact or say exactly, who sent the message, why or what it is about. More importantly, a non benevolent race is unlikely to even get that far…

I found last couple of chapters the most compelling (feel free to skip right to it) as not only it brings out the cherished world views of scientists involved and their final arguments front and center but reminds us philosophy is to be studied not for the sake of any definite answers to its questions since no definite answers can, as a rule, be known to be true but for the questions themselves because they enlarge our perception of what is possible, enrich our intellectual imagination and minimizes the dogmatic assurance which closes the mind against speculation, whenever we find beliefs challenged.

From the opening chapter of His Master’s Voice: “We stood at the feet of a gigantic find, as unprepared but also as sure of ourselves, as we could be. We clambered on it from every side, quickly, hungrily and cleverly with our time-honored skills like ants. I was one (sic). This is the story of an ant.”


Positive Film Review: Dominion

If we are pained by descriptions of how humans were treated in Nazi gas chambers and concentration camps then there is no reason why we should not be pained by this which is far more inhuman. For the World Vegan Month, in this free documentary filmed in Australia as well as UK, US, China, India, Canada and many parts of the world, we see the shocking truth about how animals have been treated every single day, even till now in the highly profitable meat, poultry and dairy industry.

The filth, infections, poisons and diseases in sheds and the blood baths in slaughter houses will make you think twice before consuming meat, if not for the sake of animals then at least for the mental and physical health of your own family. Learn how many of the practices that are labelled ‘humane’ and declared ‘legal’ by authorities and animal welfare organisations are actually so cruel that most of us are not even able to see the videos without being brave. For those unable to watch the transcript is educative https://www.dominionmovement.com/transcript, however watching this film helps us understand what suffering is beyond our own so that we can awaken our heart and take action by educating the masses and campaigning to protect the innocent.

As we focus on world peace, spiritual ascension and earth healing, we know that this is impossible without improving how we are treating other creatures on our planet. This is why this documentary is a must watch for all humans on earth so that we can stop supporting industries that abuse and kill animals and call for a global ban on slaughter and meat which is long overdue. After-all, we have known for a while how all of our nutritional needs can be fully met without harming any creature and with cleaner and greener ways of living.

Positive Review: What The Health Documentary

We all know that smoking, alcohol and processed meat all are listed as top contributors to diseases such as Cancer, Heart Ailments, Diabetes, Asthma and many more. Yet we find there are absolutely NO laws whatsoever against any of these. Most ignored of these health risks is that of the animal meat industry. Although we still have awareness campaigns to help people quit smoking and alcohol, speaking against meat and animal products is considered taboo even within families and invites criticism not only from healthcare experts but also your own friends and colleagues.

We are constantly sold more meat, poultry and dairy by packaging and marketing them as ‘good for health’ while we are told that vegans and vegetarians could be deficient in nutrients and therefore more likely to die early, even though in countries such as India it is common to see people who are totally vegetarian since birth with absolutely fantastic health. Those of us in the healing and well-being service have heard from people who halted or even reversed cancer by simply eliminating meat from their diet, and I have such received testimonials personally some of from my clients. It is easy to understand that killing and abuse of animals in industries can ensure that we get all kinds of animal feces, pus, diseases and germs in our diet which has excessive vitamin B12 just like feces has. In contrast plant diets can provide all of our nutrients in much healthier and cleaner ways. Most of the strongest animals on our planet such as elephants, rhinoceros, chimpanzees, gorillas, bulls, horses are primarily herbivores or plant eaters which should be a clear indication that our researches that tell us we need animal proteins and dairy calcium for strength or health are not entirely true.

This well made free documentary can help us understand how many of the researches we read about in media and online that claim that non-vegetarian diet is essential for health and longevity have been actually sponsored by meat, dairy and poultry producers which is why laws against them are never passed, or any health warnings ever provided on meat and animal products. Reading such research on benefits of milk, eggs or meat is more like reading on the health benefits of cigarettes in research sponsored by the tobacco industry. What is even more lucrative for governments and corporate profiteers is the money to be made through the pharmaceutical industry in keeping us ill instead of healthy simply to sell more drugs which is why doctors and medical professionals are brainwashed in their education to prescribe drugs and to not promote a vegan diet.

As expected many criticisms ‘debunking’ this documentary have been released in popular media and by health or nutritional professionals in a clear demonstration of how truth is covered up out of fear by the organized industry cartels and sponsored research. You could view this documentary yourself and take your own stand.

All in God Humour!

Wondering why God has no little or time to answer prayers? Because he’s just too busy gathering followers, lately on social media. Here are our picks for the top ten Tweets of God.

Emmy Award winning writer David Javerbaum is author of the popular book turned Broadway play, An Act of God. Last we checked he has 5.16 M followers who swear by Him and counting…

Everything I know about ESP – Russell Targ

‘You don’t have to eat porridge at your guru’s feet or pay anyone thousands of dollars. Remote Viewing is a natural ability like vision or hearing. If you work with a friend you can quickly become psychic…’ confides Russell Targ (straight-up physicist, psychic and the go-to-guy for US intelligence agencies for two decades) in this brilliant and witty talk where he concludes, ‘Remote Viewing is not about finding stuff but finding yourself…if you look into the mirror in the morning and think who you see in that mirror is who you really are, you are in for a lot of suffering. Who you really are, is non-local awareness independent of space and time and if you can quiet your mind and move your awareness besides the conditioned awareness of what it says on your business card, into naked awareness, you can start to experience the universe as it is.’

P.S. I got to know about Russell and his work from ‘The Mind Race’. Russell, an avid biker is legally blind, was senior scientist at Lockheed. This TED talk was cancelled.

Who Are You In The Matrix?

Do we live in a simulation? This question is obsolete for three reasons:

  1. Ancient philosophers all over the world already said the world, our entire universe is ‘maya’ or an illusion
  2. Modern scientists and technologists have recently started to agree that the chances we are not in a simulation are too little
  3. Modern spiritual practitioners including this author have literally seen reality manifest through their mind, people, situations and world events

It is 100% true that we live in a ‘Matrix’ of energy being constantly crafted through all the stuff in our mind. It is just like being strapped in a virtual reality system that practically generates all your life experiences right out of your conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and expectations. The more we gain consciousness through meditation, and free ourselves from the slavery of our unconscious mental programming that we absorbed through the world, the sooner we awaken.

The Matrix is everywhere, wherever our mind is….. even right now!

While we are in the Matrix, which means the world is a projection or hologram around us, which of the characters of the Matrix movie do you relate with the most:

  1. The Seeker: A bit like Neo who always felt there was something not real about his world, and spent night and night researching the truth, we might be yearning for the answers and who knows even connect with the Source of this reality to save the world, much like The One. After-all the world is a creation of our mind and the more we practice the more miracles we can manifest.neo
  2. The Supporter: Many of us are akin to Trinity and others in the team of the Resistance, to provide love and support to spiritual seekers and help them in discovering their powers as their family members, partners, friends and colleagues who work alongside each other as one celestial familiy.trinitymatrix
  3. The Guide: The way Morpheus sought various ‘potentials’ and guided Neo out of the Matrix by showing him his ‘real self’ and getting him unplugged out of the conditioned or programmed reality, we could be guides for those who are yet to awaken, and those who make that choice (the red pill), provided we have been awakened ourselves.Morpheus-Matrix
  4. The Deceiver: Just like Cypher who knows too well that we are in the Matrix, but chooses to keep entertaining himself in the false reality even after being freed, we could fool ourselves with fame, fortune, worldly success and pleasures of the senses only to once again forget who we are. Unfortunately many spiritual masters have been doing just that, using the Matrix to fulfil endless personal desires. cypher
  5. The Agent: Like Agent Smith and his team of controllers some of us try their best to keep people absorbed in their routine lives or enslavement to worldly goals and expectations, whether through fear based systems of religion and politics or the false glamour of media and outer beauty. Matrix-agents-h1ladyinred
  6. The Architect: Much like the sophisticated Architect in the movie, a few people actually design control systems of corporate, political or religious nature to prevent inner freedom, so much so that even seekers such as Neo find themselves in a conundrum. architect
  7. A Program: Such as the Merovingian or the Twins who are designed to carry our certain repeated patterns of behavior, MOST people are simply repeating whatever they have learnt to generate certain outputs in society and in their personal lives, sometimes appearing to lead rich and successful lives, and at other times aspiring to achieve more in the Matrix of worldly projections.merovingian
  8. The Oracle: Like the old Oracle program, who is designed to be intuitive so as to predict the mind of humans, there are several seers, psychics and prophets who reveal the past, present or future and guide seekers or programs alike, and yet remain very much a part of the Matrix mother program.oracle (1)
  9. The Machine: The AI machines that literally draw all the life force or energy out of people to keep themselves alive, our machinery of social, economic and religious systems feeds on human resources to control the planet and land through our own mind. You may have been part of this machination. machine

So now that you know what the Matrix is and what role you have been unconsciously or consciously fulfilling, what is your choice? Do you want to be free of the conditioned mind and discover who you really are? And what will you do when you discover your true self?
