    Rant in Z-Minor

    Rant in Z-Minor (Amended)




    Aleister Crowley starts of this small ZO/OZ synchromystic collection as he wrote Liber OZ/77,
    http://www.hermetic.com/crowley/libers/lib77.html

    77 having the same numerical value as 'Goat Boy' Pan in Hebrew/Kabbalah.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JQIo...eature=related

    I personally dont dig Kabbalah as numbers do not resonate strongly with me at this point. Added to this the Sephirot feels particularly impenetrable as a valuable technology for understanding the present moment (all there is), unnecessarily complex and obscured under vast amounts of layered attributions it has accrued over time. You could compare the Kabbalah and Sephirot to the word 'God', both having been rendered potentially meaningless in most instances as it has so many possible interpretations (layers of belief systems added) when not used in very specific context. In the same fashion I have practically no understanding of what people mean when they say modernism or post-modernism, as almost everybody means something else when the use the those words (seriously what 'is' (is always truly being 'appears to be') post-modernism?) That said synchromystically all is valid, folks like Aferrismoon use numbers to great effect given his/her personal make up.

    I am less likely to find a number related sync because my attention is elsewhere (Tunney, KK who knows..) but once seen and integrated numbers like all else are fair game when looking for material. Synchromysticism seeks to unify all fields of investigation as possible source for knowledge, if one thing can be shown convincingly to be resonating with something else, disco... I have taken my previously useless (for understanding the present moment (consciousness/Being) at least) knowledge of media (movies, television, pop culture) plus very limited occult and conspiracy theory, put it into service of synchromysticism (the art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane) and hear I am. Take what you know (video games, celebrities, comics, Astronomy, plumbing) find the synchronicities and report back, it's that simple.
    This rambling is what happens when your video making software rebels. No problem, use any perceived limitation as an opportunity to practise surrender to the NOW.




    The OZ pattern was first discovered as connected to the Stargate and Mega Ritual ideas while researching occurrences of the World Trade Centre (a bigger task then ever imagined) in popular culture.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atum

    In "The Wiz" Manhatum (Manhattan being understood currently as a symbolic mound of Atum from the Egyptian creation story) is the alternate reality Oz and fascinatingly the yellow brick rode ends right at the Wiz's (Richard Pryor) private pad, Ground Zero between the towers and pointing at the Kaaba symbolizing Sphere Sculpture. (See my most popular video as yet, "The 911 Stargate" for details)

    http://youtube.com/profile_videos?user=Seallion

    Synkronos23 brought up that Crowley's drawings of Holy Guardian Angels/Facets of Consciousness/Aliens contacted during altered states through magick looked much like 'The Wizard' (big craniums, like the Grey type alien) in the 1939 classic film.
    http://synkronos23.vox.com/

    I feel Crowley played (sometimes in the grip of a fevered ego, sometimes with more reluctance and humility) the necessary role of key Stargate realizor (one who intimately works with (or is worked by) consciousness growing in humanity) or Messiah of his time. Unlike a Buddha, the Messiah has by virtue of his function in society need of an ego, to bridge the message of consciousness to the hypnotized (by mind and form) masses. The era of both roles of Buddha and Messiah are over as the 911 Mega Ritual has initiated the entire species into consciousness and the message of liberation from thought and form (ego) can now be heard by all.

    For the clearest description of the message of surrender and NOW (as understood by this synchromystic), read books or download lectures by Echart Tolle. Alan Watts is also great but like Gautama Buddha older words by nature have less relevance and associated context with the present. The newer consciously conscious use more relevant words, examples and metaphors, Echart is alive NOW. Plus as consciousness grows its message can be said with more ease and in simpler terms, which Tolle has mastered.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eckhart_Tolle
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Watts
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gautama_Buddha




    The giant craniums and atrophied bodies of Crowley and Pharaoh Akhenaton's (the Moses resonating O.G. monotheist) 'gods' give us clues about the psychological make-up of these 'openers of the Stargate' themselves. The 'ego' (attachments to form and thoughts) gives shape to the Stargate opening experience, therefore the sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick's 'god' is a super intelligent computer from the future. Akhenaton and Crowley, who view beliefs (all beliefs are thoughts in your human head) themselves as a central (in Crowley's case as the last needed Messiah before 911, he was probably sometimes fully aware of his attachments and role playing) both starting there own massively influential systems of belief, monotheism (all Abrahamic faiths) and Thelema (O.T.O., A.:A.:, The Nine etc) respectively, both seeing there 'god' as a humanoid with a swollen head.

    "2001: Space Odyssey" being likely influenced by Crowley through Robert Temple and 'The Committee of Nine" meme (see Al-Noah) displays a similar distorted cranium humanoid (the Star Child accessed through the Star Gate) again displaying the unfounded idea that thoughts (thus form) and the brain is 'god'. These were sometimes beautiful stepping stones to enlightenment but consciousness is waking up and all attachment can be dropped, the incubation metaphor is redundant, we come hatched.

    The ZO seen once more on a "Zoolander" billboard (above) as the shadow of a 911 Mega Ritual plane hurtles towards its target in Oliver Stone's "World Trade Centre".




    Ben Stiller plays Zoolander, who was seen in a Manhatum zoo (ZO) as the Lion in "Madagascar" (See Z is for Zebra and image above).




    My favourite Zo is located on the "Zodiac" poster where all major Crowley "Grid Page" symbols converge at fair Robin Tunney's name and the ZO of the title. The relevance being that Robin Tunney has been spotted in "The Craft" with a book titled Magick, the Crowley invented way of spelling the word and like our last Stargate Messiah, also a K2 mountaineer in 2000's (2K) "Vertical Limit". (See Tunney Trillogy and Z is for Zebra for Robin details.) If you are patient and follow the syncs, I assure you this will stop seeming like a Discordian put on or a silly ARG Conciousness plays through matter, already the most beautiful game imaginable, right NOW. Much valued inspiration came from those psychedelic master pranksters of awakening consciousness like Robert Anton Wilson, but I have long since dropped any attempt at tomfoolery (exception) as straight up reality itself is the greatest prankster ever and if well represented lampoons itself.



    Zombie (ZO) comedy "Fido" sees the ZO as the stylized Z inside a circle (reminiscent of the Circle-K Stargate syncs in Why 2K: Part 1, more Circle-K coming down the pipe), the logo of "Zomcon". Tim Blake Nelson (above) has appeared alongside Robin Tunney (a 3 times Zoe actress plus the already mentioned "Zodiac" Crowley 'Grid Page' sync) in "Cherish".

    The internet is the last light of truth and hope...it is truly of the people, by the people and for the people. We must not let it be subverted for any purpose other than the truth. And that truth shall spread to every man woman and child across the globe. No longer will those in power carry the sole means to decide for us, yet we now shall have the power to decide to tune them out.

    Re: Rant in Z-Minor

    Carrie-Anne Moss also interacts with the Stargate ZO/OZ in the same film (image below). Moss played in a 1993 television show titled "Matrix" before becoming a star in the planetary consciousness awakening film "The Matrix".
    The ever growing awareness of Being beyond thought (the constant repetitive dialogue of your 'mind made identity' that most people currently believe is who they are) is starting to reach critical mass, most likely finding external expression as the '2012 Escahton' theme. The most pivotal turning point, from identification with form (ego), that kick started this massive growth of awareness on all levels was obviously the 911 Mega Ritual.

    Leading up to September 11th a telling pattern can now be discerned in films dealing with the nature of 'reality'. Beginning with 1997's "The Game" then becoming increasingly vivid with 1998's "Truman Show" and "Dark City", the subject (characters, protagonists) and object (in this case extremely restrictive and manipulated environments and situations) relationship of reality (consciousness/Being) was put on display in the collective mind in our cinemas (temples that shape consensus paradigm). The fullest expression of this progression, that of the complete collapse of false identity (of subject as separate from object or identity being thought or form) was seen even closer to the 911 Mega Ritual, "The Matrix" in 1999 (the same year seeing the less elegantly expressed but similarly themed "The Thirteenth Floor"). In these paranoid films however the environment itself is shown to be the villain (a later expression of this theme was seen in 2001's "Vanilla Sky") a slight misinterpretation of the reality of the true villain, an unhealthy metaphor of reality as dream, hologram or illusion.

    The true bad guy or manipulator is not the environment or some non-local conspiracy, but the mind identified with thoughts and objects as its true self (thinking your thoughts (beliefs, opinions) and your material possessions are who you are). One can compare "The Matrix" and "Vanilla Sky" metaphors ('reality is illusion' or 'matter is a trap'), to the religious errors of Hermeticism and Gnosticism. It's not the material/physical aspects or reality itself that is 'bad', its is trying to derive your identity (the real you being the no-thing of Being, the source of pure consciousness beyond form) from 'stuff' (objects/things in space/time even thoughts in your mind).


    The environment isn't a hologram, dream or illusion, (it is a beautiful but relatively small facet of the 'real you') though these have been powerful and useful metaphors, the time has come to be more specific, less vague. Rather then the physicality not being there, it is simply that it is not seperate from who you really are beyond form, nor can you ever find your true identity in any'thing' that is part of form.

    You are the present moment itself within which form ebbs and flows, the very suchness of the NOW, no word or idea can encapsulate (as they are things and thoughts themselves, where as you are not a thing or a thought), merely point in the direction of Being. Being can however be experienced as the present moment but never understood with the mind, as using the mind always separates object (thinker) from subject (the experience or environment).


    I would go so far as to say "The Matrix" as a consciousness growing event (a Stargate opening) was a Mega-Ritual in its own right.
    Quick working definition of a Mega Ritual: "A massive public event with major consciousness focusing result."

    When I say consciousness I don't mean 'some thing' created by your thoughts or mind, I mean the 'real you' beyond form or things. As Echart wonderfully explains, Descartes illustrated the classic error perfectly when saying "I think, therefore I am." This is getting the cart in front of the horse as thinking and mind is a product of Being and consciousness, not the other way around. This used to trip me up to no end even my old Guru (the time of Guru is over, the present moment is the teacher), Robert Anton Wilson made this same mistake when saying "Worry less, think more". Quite hilarious as the 'thinker' (as that which separates and hypnotizes by drowning out the real you with mental noise) is the very cause of all worry in the world!



    Robin Tunney (3 times Zoe and "Zodiac" poster girl) penetrates worlds in the Alice "Through the Looking Glass" Stargate in "The Craft" (below). She reaches out for her nemesis witch, Fairuza Balk, another ZO/OZ resonator as a child Dorothy Gale actress in "Return To Oz". A pretty amazing still. In one shot we see both a synchromystic 'Land of Oz Dorothy' (Balk) and 'Alice "Through The Looking Glass"' (Tunney) interacting with the Stargate.



    Having a soft spot for young audience fantasy films (err, "Harry Potter" excluded) I watched "Return To Oz" the other day, noting that "The Craft" mirror scene surfaced earlier in consciousness with elements just slightly rearranged. Young Dorothy (Balk) again on the left with Tunney (massively strong ZO resonator) being replaced by the OZ on Ozma's headband. This was witnessed just a few posts ago, again in direct connection with the Stargate Queen Robin Tunney (see "A Robin feathering his nest"). Robin was replaced by the ZO of Zomcon in Fido with Tim Blake Nelson (scroll back up and look at the stills from Cherish and Fido (ZO) with Time Blake Nelson).



    This doesn't have to be viewed through the old metaphors of occult weirdo magick or some peculiarly metaphysical crazy shit. The very moment you read this, if you can follow the syncs without becoming fearful or building some giant belief system, your and my consciousness is waking up to the NOW. The true non-local mind beyond our individual thought based identities is creating the synchronicities real time as we interact consciously with the universe, the universe that is our awareness itself! Where do synchronicities come from? From the real you beyond thought and form showing that its nature is simply infinitely inter-meshed with every thing else, underneath which is a unified (love) intelligence beyond mental understanding but accessible by all of us as the moment you are experiencing right NOW.

    Take a deep breath, smile and relax we are already where we keep trying to go. We already have everything we could ever want. We already are the entire universe experiencing itself subjectively, really...





    The only possible use of a "2012 Eschaton", considering we are already through the Stargate and in heaven right NOW, is as a powerful metaphor for global consciousness change (considering the majority still want to play the game of Maya). So, billions live in poverty and fear, well then lets continue focusing our consciousness through the net and Mega Rituals ever keeping our attention where everything is, the NOW and see what happens as we metaphorically head for the singularity, dig?

    Forget or forgive (as we forgive ourselves)"The New World Order" for their insanity (identification with thoughts and beliefs) and focus your attention on the present, you have nothing to fear as you are everything and everywhen there is.



    I have no real context for this ZO, maybe consciousness will grow some for us (through us) in the 'future'. Javier Bardem stars in master film makers the Coen Bros investigation of fate and coincidence in return to form picture "No Country for Old Men". I loved it, but my pain keeps healing and I feel less and less attracted to staring at violence in films.



    Namaste (I acknowledge the God inside of 'you')
    Amendment:
    I have no real context for this ZO, maybe consciousness will grow some for us (through us) in the 'future'.



    Look again at Javier (playing Anton Chigurh (Aton Sugar?)) above, standing at the Mike Zoss pharmacy. ZOSS/ZOSO (Led Zeppelin 4/Jimmy (Boleskine House) Page's Sigil)
    Thanks Aferrismoon (see Synking Islands of Noys, Lo-st One) Piepan (comments) and Tom (email)

    Dedicated to 'Goat Boy' Bill Hicks.

    Angry (attached to identity) and homophobic, but one of the most important modern Stargate openers and realizers of growing consciousness in humanity.

    We acknowledge our flawed Messiahs who had to endure heavy pain bodies to bridge the message of conciousness to our hypnotized minds.

    Peace be to you Akhenaton, Jesus, Aleister Crowley, Bill Hicks

    We forgive you

    Wow- so much happening at once.

    Couple points- don't forget Carrie Ann Moss in Memento (Gnostic amnesia parable) and Red Planet (Horus ritual drama).

    And there was a skit on Saturday Night Live where Jim Breuer played "Goat Boy." This of course came to us from 30 Rock.

    You may also want to factor in the HBO series Oz into these equations as well.

    I have been thinking about the Oz syncs and lately and a thing that constantly pops up in my my mind is the Academy Award (A A) nominated movie ZOZO.

    It is a great movie with some relevant syncs I think.

    Harold Perrineau is in both OZ, Matrix and L(OS)T. I thought I would leave something with such magnitude well alone for now (as I haven't seen the show, my friend says it rocks, sounds violent (not that Lost is about peace on Earth or anyhting, mind)..

    Something to think about:

    Led Zepplin's "IV" album, while lacking an official title, is also often referred to as "Zoso," since this is inexplicably (as far as I know) printed on the inner sleeve, along with some ruinic symblols.

    And I think we can all agree about Jimmy Page.

    Piepan (io pan) is obviously plugged in:
    James Page's "Zoso" symbol
    home.att.net/~chuckayoub/zoso.jpg
    for Led Zeppelin's fourth album is supposedly from a 1557 alchemical grimoire (haven't checked the source on that one...). The "Z" represents Saturn (and Page's Capricorn sign) and the "oso" is Mercury/Hermes. The whole thing is rendered in a Crowley-esque script.
    Synchromystic paydirt: beyond Page's (messenger/mercury) association with Crowley's Boleskine Loch Ness house, 1st editions, paraphernalia, the Zoso(ZoZo) symbol itself is an unmistakable affirmation of your OZ /ZO reversal, the Oz/Os/So/Zo interchangability and the literal mercurial connection (the line/wand between the "oSo") between form/non-form. Also, it looks like a cat-face or a dude smoking a pipe.
    That album, band, and symbol was a "consciousness growing event" in its own rite, complete with my favorite aspect: the Junior High School Dance Stairway to Heaven Mega-Ritual!

    What a great read. Many syncro's will feel an affinity with this rant. Sometimes it is good to stand back and articulate what it is we are doing in the syncromystic world. As we dig, we need a place to archive our discoveries. Perhaps it is a type of religion we are creating here? Without the insane dogma posse. Respectfully, Dennis from Oregon.

    Let's not forget Sean Connery as the barbarian mercenary who sees behind the curtain in the cult classic "Zardoz" - wi-ZARD-of-OZ.
    Or the quirky Mark Hamill, post apocalyptic, "Slipstream" in which he visits with the elite parliamentarians hiding underground who have dispatched an android killer that gains emotional sensitivity within the process.

    Numerically, OZ = 14 + 26 = 40
    40 thieves or in digital root math terms, 4. 4 = box, cube, square, or masonic rock - a capacative trap that is not fractal at all.

    Just a quick add in.. in the first movie Men in Black there is scene where the owner of the Cat(Orion collar with the Galaxy)is in a Diner with the Lurch looking character.. the whole time in the background there is van parked across the street with the letters N O Z..it is shown through 3 windows..as in just like the Last Supper..anyway the OZ letters were more prevalent..intentionally?..and to make it even more interesting was the fact the van was GREEN (as in Wizard of OZ)

    BEE WELL and have a great day!

    Re: Rant in Z-Minor

    OK, so who was Bill Hicks
    I am a huge fan of Bill Hicks, the late American comedian, who died of pancreatic cancer aged only 32. For those who have not heard of him, Bill was part social critic, part comedian, part preacher. As he himself said, he was Chomsky with dick jokes. Hicks stripped away the lies and deceit our governme.nts have woven for us, laying bare grim truths, laced with his biting, trademark wit. Bill's humour though sometimes harsh, was not intended to upset, more to bring people together: "The best kind of comedy to me is when you make people laugh at things they've never laughed at, and also take a light into the darkened corners of people's minds, exposing them to the light. I thought the whole point of it was to make you feel un-alone." source: salon.com If this is the first time you have heard of him, you need him in your life!

    Watching the news can be depressing. The same spin by the govern.ments, the same bias from the media. Watching Bill perform is cathartic, someone standing up and saying things which need to be said. He screams and shouts things you want to scream and shout about, he rips through the haze of rhetoric that keeps the masses herded and unthinking. In his act, he goes to places most comedians would not dare visit, whilst acknowledging the potentially damaging effect on his career: "Where's Bill going? Comedy death!"

    I only heard of Bill a couple of years ago, yet his observations have left a deep impact on me. The point of Bill's humour was not cheap shocks. He really cared about the things he talked about, and the fact was that he made current affairs searingly funny. To visit the official Bill Hicks site, click here!

    Hicks would always charge right into the most delicate and taboo areas of our society. Covering topics ranging from pro-lifers to religion, Bill was not prepared to settle for any hypocrisy, or take any bulls.hit. On the subject of music, nothing annoyed him more than bland, manufactured pop-music, and when talking about MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice (remember them?!), he was very, very funny.

    Dark Poet
    With Bill getting as passionate as he did on stage, it seems inevitable that the anger had to go somewhere. If the audience seemed unresponsive or just didn't get Bill's points, he could unleash that anger on them, as he tried to win them round. Although things could sometimes get a little ugly, his act would not have been the same without that passion and anger. He spoke from the heart, and his frustration at the many injustices he would talk about is what gave him an edge. One thing you could not accuse him of is being bland.

    Mushrooms!

    Hicks was also a deeply spiritual and caring man, a side those on the end of his abrasive tongue might find hard to believe. As well as flotation tanks and meditation, Hicks decided to try to fast-track to becoming enlightened, mainly by taking large doses of hallucinogenic mushrooms. His passion and anger which he unleashed was tempered at exactly the right moments with his humour, "I am also available for childrens parties." Bill also loved wildlife, and there is a non-profit centre for rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife in Bill's name, "The Bill Hicks Foundation for Wildlife Rehabilitation". This wildlife centre is based in Austin, Texas.

    Influences
    It would appear that Noam Chomsky was a major influence in both Hicks' routine and his philosophy. Chomsky is a professor of linguistics, as well as lecturing and writing on many other interests, including international affairs and U S foreign policy. Chomsky's social analysis is unlike anything you are likely to find in the media. Check out this site on Chomsky, to find out more about him. If you want to dive right in to Chomsky's writing, a good place to start might be Rogue States, where Chomsky argues that the US and allies are the countries that we should be wary of, and not the countries reported in the media. I found some of the content of this book deeply disturbing, but I think it is a necessary read.

    Another influence in Bill's life was the psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung. It seemed that Bill genuinely believed that humans are still evolving. The next stage in our evolution, he believed, was a spiritual one. "folks, it's time to evolve ideas. we.. you know, evolution did not end with us growing thumbs. you do know that, right? it didn't end there. we're at the point now where we... we're going to have to evolve ideas. the reason the world is so fuc.ked up is because we're undergoing evolution, and the reason our institutions, our traditional religions are all crumbling is because they're no longer relevant." His belief, "we are all one consciousness, experiencing itself subjectively", is quite a profound idea. (If you want to explore this idea further, I recommend the book, The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot). Hicks believed that we can help the evolutionary process by way of raising the level of the collective unconscious (Jung's term for the level of the human psyche that contains content inherited from others (manifested through cultural myth)). "The collective unconscious contains the whole spiritual heritage of mankind's evolution, born anew in the brain structure of every individual."[The Structure of the Psyche," Collected Works 8, par. 342.] (Interestingly, the idea of the "whole within the part", also ties back to "The Holographic Universe". Read it - it's good!

    If you are interested in matters of a spiritual nature, (and don't want to try Bill's hallucinogenic mushroom route!) I would recommend The Prophet's Way by Thom Hartmann, and also the Conversations With God series, by Neale Donald Walsch. These books have left a deep impact on me. If you believe in only one religion, and have an idea of God as a vengeful entity, then be warned, you may struggle with some of the ideas presented in these books. If, however, you believe that you don't need to belong to any 'religious club', in order to find God, then you might find the above books of interest. They do not try to 'convert' anyone, but instead explore more open-minded possibilities.

    To me, watching Hicks serves as a reminder that we can never become politically lazy or complacent. Hicks was saying, "look what the people in power can get away with if we let them". One obvious reference to place here is Hitler's Germany. One way in which to prevent that from happening again is if we constantly challenge what we are told. I think much of Hicks' anger stemmed from the seeming levels of apathy displayed in the face of really dodgy evidence (Kennedy). All of what Hicks wanted to achieve is never more relevent than today, with wars being waged again on what appears to be quite flimsy 'evidence'.

    Right, after this little ramble, time for some more fun stuff!


    Favourite Quotes:

    **Warning: some of the quotes below may be offensive to some!**

    "A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back, he's really going to want to see a fuc.king cross? Ow! Maybe that's why he hasn't shown up yet...it's like going up to Jackie Onassis wearing a rifle pendant...just thinking of John..."

    "Frightening people man. Bush tried to buy votes towards the end of the election. Goes around, you know, selling weapons to everyone, getting that military industrial complex vote happening for him. Sold 160 fighter jets to Korea and then 240 tanks to Kuwait and then goes around making speeches why he should be Commander-in-Chief because, "We still live in a dangerous world."...Thanks to you, you fuc.ker!"

    On Kennedy...

    "I love talking about Kennedy. I was just down in Dallas, Texas. You know you can go down there and, er, to Dealey Plaza where Kennedy was assassinated. And you can actually go to the sixth floor of the Schoolbook Depository. It's a museum called... 'The Assassination Museum'. I think they named that after the assassination. I can't be too sure of the chronology here but... Anyway they have the window set up to look exactly like it did on that day. And it's really accurate, you know, cos Oswald's not in it."

    "Unbelievable. And you know what's wild, people's, attitudes in the States about it. Talking about Kennedy, people come up to me: "Bill, quit talking about Kennedy, man. Let it go. It's a long time ago - just forget about it."And I'm like alright, then don't bring up Jesus to me! As long as we're talking shelf life here. "Bill, you know Jesus died for you." Yeah, well it was a long time ago. Forget about it!"

    On Dinosaurs...

    "You know the world's 12 thousand years old and dinosaurs existed, they existed in that time, you'd think it would have been mentioned in the fu.cking Bible at some point. "And lo Jesus and the disciples walked to Nazareth. But the trail was blocked by a giant brontosaurus... with a splinter in his paw. And O the disciples did run a shriekin': 'What a big f.ucking lizard, Lord!' But Jesus was unafraid and he took the splinter from the brontosaurus's paw and the big lizard became his friend. And Jesus sent him to Scotland where he lived in a loch for O so many years inviting thousands of American tourists to bring their fat f.uck.ing families and their fat dollar bills.And oh Scotland did praise the Lord. Thank you Lord, thank you Lord. Thank you Lord."

    "Get this, I actually asked one of these guys, OK, Dinosaurs fossils - how does that fit into you scheme of life? Let me sit down and strap in. He said, "Dinosaur fossils? God put those there to test our faith." I think God put you here to test my faith, Dude. You believe that? "uh huh." Does that trouble anyone here? The idea that God.. might be.. fu.ckin' with our heads? I have trouble sleeping with that knowledge. Some prankster God running around: "Hu hu ho. We will see who believes in me now, ha ha." [mimes God burying fossils] "I am God, I am a prankster." "I am killing Me."

    One of my favourite quotes on advertising:

    "By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing... kill yourself. No, no, no it's just a little thought. I'm just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day, they'll take root - I don't know. You try, you do what you can. Kill yourself. Seriously though, if you are, do. Aaah, no really, there's no rationalisation for what you do and you are Satan's little helpers, Okay - kill yourself - seriously. You are the ruiner of all things good, seriously. No this is not a joke, you're going, "there's going to be a joke coming," there's no fuc.king joke coming. You are Satan's spawn filling the world with bile and garbage. You are f.ucked and you are fu.cking us. Kill yourself. It's the only way to save your fu.cking soul, kill yourself. Planting seeds. I know all the marketing people are going, "he's doing a joke... there's no joke here whatsoever. Suck a tail-pipe, fuc.king hang yourself, borrow a gun from a Yank friend - I don't care how you do it. Rid the world of your evil f.ucking machinations. I know what all the marketing people are thinking right now too, "Oh, you know what Bill's doing, he's going for that anti-marketing dollar. That's a good market, he's very smart." Oh man, I am not doing that. You f.ucking evil scumbags! "Ooh, you know what Bill's doing now, he's going for the righteous indignation dollar. That's a big dollar. A lot of people are feeling that indignation. We've done research - huge market. He's doing a good thing." Godammit, I'm not doing that, you scum-bags!

    Quit putting a godamm dollar sign on every fu.cking thing on this planet!

    "Ooh, the anger dollar. Huge. Huge in times of recession. Giant market, Bill's very bright to do that." God, I'm just caught in a fu.cking web! "Ooh the trapped dollar, big dollar, huge dollar. Good market - look at our research. We see that many people feel trapped. If we play to that and then separate them into the trapped dollar..." How do you live like that? And I bet you sleep like fu.cking babies at night, don't you?"

    Another of my favourites...Bill on the brainwashing effects of TV...

    "So there, we have figured it out, go back to bed America, your gov.ernment has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed America, your gov.ernment is in control again. Here, here's American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up. Go back to bed America, here's American Gladiators. Here's 56 channels of it. Watch these pituitary retards bang their fu.ckin skulls together and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom. Here you go America, you are free... to do as we tell you. You are free, to do as we tell you."

    We are all one consciousness...

    And Bill, lamenting how you never see a positive drug story on the news..."Today, a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration and that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and you are the imagination of yourself. Here's Tom with the weather...!"

    Bill's powerful closing speech...
    "The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride..." And we... kill those people.

    "We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real." Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace. Thank you very much, you've been great."

    Bill Hicks (December 16, 1961 -- February 26, 1994)

    The internet is the last light of truth and hope...it is truly of the people, by the people and for the people. We must not let it be subverted for any purpose other than the truth. And that truth shall spread to every man woman and child across the globe. No longer will those in power carry the sole means to decide for us, yet we now shall have the power to decide to tune them out.
