Well, as much as I would like to make the focal point of this post a well-researched, multi-hyperlink tribute to Albert Hofmann first synthesizing LSD on this day in 1938…
One of the key features of the coming age is the return of the idea of impermanence. If you are a scholar of certain Eastern philosophies, you may be familiar with the idea of impermanence: that all things must break down and fade away.
But up until the last 15 years or so, the West’s “thing” has been permanence. Let’s explore this concept and follow how it continues to be undermined in the current era.
The above image is what I made in my journal this morning instead of finishing my to-do list. I basically pasted & plastered over the to-do list. It was either that, or just abandon the journal entirely for a few days. This blog is similar; sometimes I either jump in “messy” or stay away for nearly a week. (That’s sort of my social pattern as well.)
I have ten vital questions for you regarding the future of humanity. Some of these might be uncomfortable to contemplate, but if you face them head-on—even if you might not have any “solutions” at the moment—I think it puts you ahead of curve:
I thought I needed to write a quick(ish) follow-up post to my previous one today, to explain this growing psychic pressure I’m feeling coming off the Collective at the moment.

The Singularity has already taken place. I’m gonna go live in that artist’s hut right off the P-Town shore now.
Welcome back to Messenger Shiva, a multi-part blog series tracing the roots of today’s conspiracy theorist beliefs to the aftermath of 9/11. The bookend to it all is my own life during the early-to-mid 2000’s, and how I observed it all go down on teh internets. (Please note: this post is not an endorsement of said conspiracy theories.)
For about 5-10 years, I was largely known for getting massively publicly (and privately) harassed on the Internet. It was constant; and I was getting literally famous for that shit! Trolling on my blog, threats of violence & death…all types of nasty anonymous emails, Twitter DMs, Facebook messages, etc. The best was when one blogger or another would just focus on me exclusively, directing massive torrents of hate my way; that was awesome.
In many cultures throughout history there has been a “framework” in place to deal with spiritual matters. Community exorcisms, talent-scouting potential shamans, blessing the crops, etc.
