>We sometimes go on as though people can’t express themselves. In fact they’re always expressing themselves. The sorriest couples are those where the woman can’t be preoccupied or tired without the man saying “What’s wrong? Say something…,” or the man, without the woman saying … and so on. Radio and television have spread this spirit everywhere, and we’re riddled with pointless talk, insane quantities of words and images. Stupidity’s never blind or mute. So it’s not a problem of getting people to express themselves but of providing little gaps of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Repressive forces don’t stop people expressing themselves but rather force them to express themselves; What a relief to have nothing to say, the right to say nothing, because only then is there a chance of framing the rare, and ever rarer, thing that might be worth saying. What we’re plagued by these days isn’t any blocking of communication, but pointless statements. But what we call the meaning of a statement is its point. That’s the only definition of meaning, and it comes to the same thing as a statement’s novelty. You can listen to people for hours, but what’s the point? . . . That’s why arguments are such a strain, why there’s never any point arguing. You can’t just tell someone what they’re saying is pointless. So you tell them it’s wrong. But what someone says is never wrong, the problem isn’t that some things are wrong, but that they’re stupid or irrelevant. That they’ve already been said a thousand times. The notions of relevance, necessity, the point of something, are a thousand times more significant than the notion of truth. Not as substitutes for truth, but as the measure of the truth of what I’m saying. It’s the same in mathematics: Poincaré used to say that many mathematical theories are completely irrelevant, pointless; He didn’t say they were wrong – that wouldn’t have been so bad.

>This is the first time I saw a theory claiming mass is somehow generated inside the earth.

Right on Anon, I put the information for people like you who just haven't even been introduced to the idea yet. It seems unrelated to the book subject, but it actually becomes important for Moses' historiography. I appreciate your comments, make sure to give these 2 videos a watch to get the basic gestalt. The comment section is also a treasure trove of Neil Adams BTFOing science onions-boys.



I've legitimately created the new philosophical point of orientation for the 21st century. I have filled in the gap between McKenna's prehistoric mushroom cult and the ancient Greeks. Keep coping.

Like I said, I keep bibliography very short, because most of the text is explicit in the Hebrew Bible once you read from the right perspective. This is not a "Science" paper, this a religious treatise that explains the historical and theological dimensions of the Hebrew Bible. If you look like pic rel you probably won't understand.

I will concede a point here with you anons. There are episodes of unbearable verbosity. This is probably what my next editorial pass will be largely devoted to. Even then, I doubt that I will be able to remove more than 10% of the text... It seems long, but the length is actually necessary.

Completely and utterly wrong.

I'm sober for more than 5 years now brother, find another way to cope.


It's about more than that, it's about how these drugs were integrated into the palatial and governmental culture of the ancient world. These drugs were problem solving technology for the priest classes in antiquity, they were universally used by political leaders. This is very different than having brain dead hippies taking this stuff.

Terence and the Stoned Ape Theory will go down in history as the most significant ideological theory of the 2nd millenium. The buttmad scientists who cucked themselves at university are just mad because a weed smoking hippie who actually enjoys life made this discovery and not them.
