As real Barfsters know, every once in awhile BS focuses on what I consider to be great websites, bloggers and thinkers. So far this year BS has featured Lon Strickler, Bruceleeeowe, Dan Mitchell and Bruce Duensing. And, now, I feature Duensing - my co-founder of The C Influence Blog - again. (Lon and Bruceleeeowe are also writers at TCI - and we continue to try for Dan.)
Seems Bruce has been digging into the perception rabbit hole deeper lately than just about anyone on the planet and what he has been uncovering is somewhat amazing and it seems he is being provided proof of some of his ideas as his intentionality's seemingly breakdown the interiors of actuality.
For example, from this post - What If You Knew Everything You Know Was Unknown? - http://materialintangible.blogspot.com/2010/11/what-if-you-knew-everything-you-know.html come these words from another recent post:
I was also struck by the similarity of the aim of both the traditional esoteric school, as well as one that is seemingly applied to such cases as the UFO phenomenon, whereas both appear to focus on the individual by deconstructing the imprinted knowledge base by which we function at perhaps one could consider, a base level, as in water seeking it's own level only in this case, the lowest level appears to be the cultural, consensus models of what reality can and cannot do, a common language of repetition, stereotype and predictability which is reinforced by all forms of our media.
Perhaps these words struck me because Lujan Matus seems to imply the same `wisdom/learning' supposedly being handed to him in his Dreaming via Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda's shaman of questionable existence. And that is, at least to my understandings, that our very perceptions are formed ONLY by repetition, stereotype and predictability -- that is largely given to us by our `parents'/culture. We learn (are told/shown) what is `real' and `how it acts'. Converting, as it were, the Unknown to the Known.
In other words, if a extraterrestrial landed and you had somewhat of a coherent conversation with this other animal from a entirely unique biology and sense perception, this ET would more than likely inform you and I that our animal perceptions of space, of time are simply that, perceptions that bear no relation to his reality or ours, that in fact, neither of them exist, except as by products, that we take in hand and create little fictions and great myths in a animal innocence similar to that of a dog, or a horse, or a cat. So what if you discovered exponentially, rather than being taught that everything you knew was wrong, misapplied, hopelessly self referential and not very helpful, and in fact, all of this had turned you the wrong way around for not just a moment or so, but for your entire life, in the deepest sense you could imagine?
In the above lines - I think Bruce brings home the concept of just how devastating an explosion of our understanding of our perceptions could be to an individual. Indeed, enough to `flip-out' some individuals and send them to `mental institutions' IMO. While other people become fixated at gaining more understandings of how perception `works' - and become `investigators' of the unknown in its available forms.
Perhaps the individual in a strange sense of evolution in my own rather admittedly "different" sense of the paranormal comes from Gurdjieff as well as Krishnamurti, as well as David Bohmn and Rodger Penrose , all of these individuals as fractals of the dance of the self and non-self I have noted, and yet none, much like the limits of my perception, can take the measure of the whole, and when paranormalists attempt to do so, I think their personal exposure limits come to the fore, wherein they have seen or have investigated so many strange events, that their self critical facilities are worn away like a rock in a rushing stream, so much so that, to them they begin a strange underpinning that anything is possible, if it is in human terms. I say that not everything is possible in human terms tho it is more than likely not in our terms
What I like above is that I think Bruce aptly describes our `faith' in the terms of human perception representing `real'. Now, does that mean that only by wearing away the facilities for perception that the condition for the `paranormal' - `appears'?
Bruce brings his ideas home with this:
A final question: Is it you and I that have created demons from the animal perception of biology? Perhaps we are being taught a new language and as such, I profess ignorance as to where this will lead although it may lead from our burrows where all the roles are within us from The Wizard of Oz, to the extraterrestrial from a far way realm, to a sort of bird alighting from one tree to the next. As for myself, the old demons have been driven from underneath the bed and replaced with a blank sheet of paper to improvise upon....and I sense there is something new that has arrived beyond our recycled mythologies, much like the hydraulic pressure that forces a liquid through the cracks of our foundational tenants drop by drop, until perhaps inevitably, we cannot go back or cling to our pet demons. We perhaps are given a probability there is an experiential language we have yet to be cognizant of as a matter of self awareness rather than cultural imprinting
Like Bruce, I too believe that perceptions are largely a languagelike experience of imprinting. Lujan Matus implies the same too. -------------------------------- At this point, Bruce wrapped up his post --- but then - had a very weird `impossible event' happen to him ------ AS IF TO SHOW HIM that it might be a learning of a language which governs our potential reality - almost a sign to show he is on the right path. PLEASE GO TO THE LINK TO READ ABOUT THE IMPOSSIBLE EVENT. (That is shown to him in an area of his expertise.)
But, I'm not done with Bruce for today - as this is his latest and is one of his few fiction pieces: Another Conversation With An Old Devil - http://materialintangible.blogspot.com/2010/11/another-coversation-with-old-devil.html
The Reality of Being: The Fourth Way of Gurdjieff
Gurdjieff, Tsabropoulos: Chants, Hymns and Dances
Gurdjieff, A Beginner's Guide: How Changing The Way We React To Misplacing Our Keys Can Transform Our Lives
The above books largely talk about `The Fourth Way' Ideas - if that is new to you - you owe it to yourself to read up on these important ideas about the reality you experience as a human.

DOES THIS DESCRIBE YOUR INTEREST IN BITCOIN?
You arrive at this blog searching non Bitcoin terms - but - interestingly, you do have an interest in finding out more about Bitcoin. You probably don't know what the term Blockchain means either. Or, that there are over 800 branded "coins" like Bitcoin on the blockchain technology. You know that you would like to know more - but don't know where to start or who to ask. What luck that you are here today. Here's this blogs best advice.................. The sidebar has "Bitcoin" books and "Bitcoin" links - exploring any of these can be helpful for your learning curve....... But, let's say you simply want to get your feet wet - to actually OWN some Bitcoin - and you are simply wanting to know the first steps on obtaining some Bitcoin............. Cool - because it's not hard to do - but - you DO need to know a few things about OWNING Bitcoin...... First things first - Bitcoin in 2017 is totally legit and you are going to have to identify yourself, and verify yourself, to buy OR to "mine" Bitcoin............Next - there is only a place or two to buy Bitcoin at the lowest price - the main company is called Coinbase. Millions of people have Coinbase accounts. MOST people in America buy their first Bitcoin from Coinbase....... Now, interestingly, Coinbase has an interesting "bonus" to those who sign up - and buy their first 100.00 USD of Bitcoin. BUT - the bonus involves USING AN AFFILIATE link to JOIN Coinbase; I'll explain what and why.......First, ONLY IF you use an affiliate link do you get the Coinbase bonus - this is my link at coinbase https://www.coinbase.com/join/52570ca75308dda35e000033 - IF you use it when you join and then eventually buy your FIRST 100.00 USD of Bitcoin from Coinbase - THEN THEY GIVE YOU 10.00 USD OF FREE BITCOIN - (They Also Reward Me). It's Coinbase's way to welcome American People to Bitcoin.....IF YOU DO NOT USE THE AFFILIATE LINK TO SIGN UP - THEY DO NOT REWARD YOU EVER FOR YOUR FIRST 100 USD - IT'S THAT SIMPLE...DO YOU WANT 10 FREE USD OF BITCOIN... You too will have an Affiliate Link after you join - make sure to share that with your friends when they want to buy their first Bitcoin. Also, when you join Coinbase... You will automatically also have a Bitcoin wallet (and address) - you will need a Bitcoin Wallet to acquire BTC from the only other method of OWNING Bitcoin - to "Mine" it....
Yes, it's true...you really can become a miner................ And, to some people that means REALLY getting into the entire Blockchain scene, learning the language, becoming experts, and eventually buying Mining Equipment...... And, that is fine for some people. BUT...it is time consuming - AND - Bitcoin machines are notoriously "hot and loud" and somewhat expensive to run as they consume lots of electricity.......Which FINALLY brings us to the last quick tutorial for you... the news that you can also RENT "mining" equipment - by buying what is called Hashpower - from a reputable company..... UNFORTUNATELY, reputable mining companies, are few and far between - indeed - I can ONLY recommend the one I am using myself, (and even then I suggest caution in over investing as Bitcoin's price is rising so fast, that to send it out to get it back seems non-productive) - Genesis-Mining...... they are a long running mining farm with low electricity costs - and over 500,000 people worldwide are already "mining" with them from buying Hashpower contracts. That Hashpower is assigned to your rented machines - which "mine" cryptocurrency daily - you are sent your earnings the following day, which they accumulate to send to you automatically .... at Genesis Mining there are multiple coins to "mine" and you set the mix of coins you "mine" - and you can change your mix at any time. The return on your investment will ultimately depend on the price of Bitcoin and the coins you choose to "mine". Obviously, if you re-invest your returns in buying additional Hashpower - your ROI will be quicker. Indeed, after a number of months (less than a year currently) you will be "up" and earning daily bitcoin value indefinitely on the Sha256 contract....it's a longer term view - if a year is to be considered long term. And, like Coinbase, Genesis-Mining also has a "win-win" Affiliate Program for new users - IF you use a PROMO code to buy your "mining contract/Hashpower" - you save 3% on your cost (you pay full price if you don't use the promo/coupon code) - AND - they also provide me a bit of FREE Hashpower for bringing you into the "mining" spectrum. "Mining Contracts" begin at ONLY 30.00 USD,it's a no brainer - Here's my Genesis Mining Code (you can see it in other places on this blog too) lcS0Un - use the code when you sign up. Just click the links, or click the banner at the top of the sidebar. Thanks.
Oh - one final thing - the powers that be - may DECLINE your perfectly valid Visa card - In Other Words - You May Need To Call Your Bank Or VISA to be able to buy - to validate your purchase. It's just one additional way the powers that be want to keep you powerless. Once you do that your order will be approved. Yes...you can use credit cards.
It's really just easiest to get that Coinbase account and buy Bitcoin - or - get that Coinbase account and have someone who owns Bitcoin transfer it to you there via your free Bitcoin wallet and address. Thanks for reading...but, now you are actually ready and have the basics...it's up to you.
